Brown Residence

The Arizona Desert: The Brown Residence

The Brown Residence was designed by Lake|Flato Architects and is located in Scottsdale, Arizona, United States. The site characteristics in this case were truly challenging, but the architects managed to plan a home that is both functional and aesthetically pleasing. According to the project developers, the house maximizes the desert views, allowing its inhabitants to fully enjoy their unique natural environment: “The careful design makes this possible as views to neighboring houses are edited out focused instead on distant mountains. While the residence presents an unassuming, modest scale to the street, it steps down with the slope of the site allowing the spaces inside to become quite generous. Oversize pivot doors and large expanses of glass allow abundant light and air into these spaces while broad overhangs and shading devices protect them from the harsh desert sun“
