Modern Ranch

A fun collaboration of desert materials with a hint of a classic ranch floorplan.  This house has a kids’ wing, complete with the “Kid Cave”, on the west and the adult wing on the east.  With so many windows, the house and the desert seem as one.  The 30′ saguaro in the front yard was too big to move so the house was built around it.  The monsoons bring life to the washes, as seen from the “observation deck” in the back bedroom.  The stucco on the lively kid side of the house has a highly textured surface and is the same color as a Palo Verde tree trunk.  The kitchen is set up for big meals and a large family.  Lots of energy in this house!
