CONTEMPORARY ART

SHELLY ANN ABBOTT, MLA, HOLDS AN ALCA JUDGES AWARD FOR THE RENOVATION OF THIS SOUTHWEST CONTEMPORARY RESIDENCE. SONORAN DESERT PLANT MATERIAL SUCH AS IRONWOOD TREES AND SAGUAROS WERE RETAINED TO SERVE AS A NATURAL BACKDROP FOR NEW NATIVE PLANTINGS WHICH ADD INTEREST, COLOR, AND TEXTURE YEAR AROUND. PLANTINGS ARE DESIGNED TO FRAME THE ART WHICH WAS SELECTED AND PLACED IN THE LANDSCAPE TO SHOW IT TO BEST ADVANTAGE. NATIVE POLLINATORS SUCH AS HUMMINGBIRDS, BUTTERFLIES, AND MOTHS HAVE HABITAT AND FOOD IN THIS LANDSCAPE. AN OUTDOOR KITCHEN AND FIRE PIT CREATE NEW AREAS TO RELAX AND ENTERTAIN. NATURAL GRANITE AND STAINLESS STEEL ARE USED FOR THE OUTDOOR KITCHEN AND STRIKE A BEAUTIFUL BALANCE WITH THE DESERT AND THE ART. BERMS AND SWALES PASSIVELY HARVEST RAINFALL. BOULDERS AND DECOMPOSED GRANITE HELP PREVENT EVAPORATION OF RAINFALL.
