The basic layout for this residence resembles that of the Carl Fisher Estate completed in 1926 broadly split into three sections – main house guest pavilion and service section. The main house is composed of living rooms bedrooms and a glass ventilated area giving an unobstructed view to beautiful large pool and the lagoon lying close to the house.
Supported by a steel and concrete skin the interior volumes containing the living and resting spaces can be rearranged by adding or removing rooms. By using locally sourced lark timber to dress up the facade the architects embedded the modern architecture into the surrounding landscape.
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.
Alexander Brenner Architects designed an interesting residential construction in which two villas share the same facade. Each of the constructions has their own floor plan and atmosphere. The only things connecting them are the shared front facade and staircase.
The wooden floors and grey colored rugs keep its interiors warm all through the year. Intermittent black and white leather cushion sets and the contemporary artifacts hung from the white wall impart artistic appeal to this apartment.
The Nettleton 199 project partner Greg Truen states the task was to create a building which would give a maximum view of the sea and to create a garden beside the mountain located near the site. They also wanted minimal exposure to the neighboring buildings. The residence overlooks the Atlantic Ocean to the west and its design gives prime-most importance to privacy such that it offers least vision to neighboring houses.
