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. In addition to the rammed earth walls, The Perch features rough sawn Douglas fir cladding and weathered steel panels that disappear into the majestic Sedona landscape.
To assist owners, their architects and builders, Communities Southwest has developed Architectural Principles to guide the planning, design and construction of every homesite.
