The Perch

The Aerie was planned and designed with a goal to promote excellence in architecture. The Aerie is destined to become a community of architectural distinction with a collection of homes that carefully blend into the natural setting.

Our vision for excellent architecture is best demonstrated by The Perch, The Aerie's on-site sales studio completed in early 2009. The Perch blends simple orthogonal forms and a refined palette of materials that live naturally in the surroundings of the Red Rock Secret Mountain Wilderness. A tall, 24-inch thick mass of rammed earth forms the south and west walls of The Perch, paying quiet reverence to the colorful strata of the sandstone cliffs beyond.

Completed in 2009, the project won an Honor Award from
the Western Mountain Region AIA design competition.

I keep picking projects done by the construction zone ltd! Inspiring stuff. Can you please tell me what the material is edging the roof. Is this a rubber roof?
Thanks for taking time to reply

Hi Peter,
Thank you for your interest in our work.
The fascia is steel that has been left to weather. The roofing is foam with a elastomeric coating (fairly common in Arizona).
