Northern Exposure // Great RoomRustic Living Room, Phoenix

This homage to prairie style architecture located at The Rim Golf Club in Payson, Arizona was designed for owner/builder/landscaper Tom Beck.

This home appears literally fastened to the site by way of both careful design as well as a lichen-loving organic material palatte. Forged from a weathering steel roof (aka Cor-Ten), hand-formed cedar beams, laser cut steel fasteners, and a rugged stacked stone veneer base, this home is the ideal northern Arizona getaway.

Expansive covered terraces offer views of the Tom Weiskopf and Jay Morrish designed golf course, the largest stand of Ponderosa Pines in the US, as well as the majestic Mogollon Rim and Stewart Mountains, making this an ideal place to beat the heat of the Valley of the Sun.

Designing a personal dwelling for a builder is always an honor for us. Thanks, Tom, for the opportunity to share your vision.

    Thank you so much for saying so! We are very proud of this project. Unfortunately, we do not know what wood and stain was used for the window trim and beams. So sorry about that! Good luck!

    Hi there, we think they are pretty great too! Unfortunately the owner made his own furniture selections (including the lamps) so we do not have that information, sorry about that! Good luck! :)

    Hi John! Thank you for your question. We used stone but highly recommend recessing a steel box. Hope that helps! Good luck :)
