Designed for two real estate professionals and their two sons the Jarson Residence by Will Bruder + Partners rises as a quiet and imposing structure from the desert surrounding it. Overlooking the McDowell Mountains to the north east this spectacular dream home is dressed in a skin made of weathered steel and cooper pierced by large glazed areas. The cladding fabricates a strong connection to the surroundings while the glass walls and windows framing the views construct a lighthouse effect during the night when the lights are turned on.
Previously a major portion of the house was constructed using wood. It was later replaced with stone and concrete with a little wooden slab in walls and roof. The renovation has found space for a new guest house and pool. The new structure erected with ample reinforcement to resist tectonic shifts and earthquakes.
The house appears to be a brilliant option from an economical point of view. It utilizes every scope for natural methods of power conservation like natural cross ventilation a geo-thermal heating and cooling system and the double-paneled roof. These facilities ensure cool and nice living for residents in this house. Also energy charges could be trimmed down significantly.
By choosing a color palette that would compliment the surroundings, the architects dissolved the boundaries between indoors and outdoors and prolonged the dynamic coastline inside. An open floor plan allowed the creation of an L-shaped cooking/living/entertaining zone open to the outside deck and swimming pool. And also check out the Bloom Chair by Kenneth Cobonpuere featured a while back on Decoist – it looks amazing in this house!
The main living room divides into an entertainment section and dining section; and it branches further to other sections in this house. Glass windows offer unhindered vision to the exteriors whereas contemporary lighting gives a luxurious feeling to the interior. The kitchen is very spacious and you would see every appliance in a modern kitchen here. There are bar stools and a marble platform. Stylish bedrooms and post modern bathrooms make this residence really an irresistible one.
Since it is housed in a crowded town availability of space was a major constraint. Within the limited space the designers have marvelously managed to erect this wonderful building. They used every technology which would enable them to mask the possible difficulties of limited space.
Stretching across an area of 4589 square feet this wonderful two storey building has the main living room as well as the master suite on the second level. This allows you to have a full coverage of the exciting outdoor view. The house is an exemplary example of using wood in house construction.
