Sited north of the Phoenix valley, the Pond Residence has been carefully crafted to comfort in a desert oasis. Upon approach one walks a path of natural flagstone stair into a ‘canyon’ formed by a wall of steel and the curving sloped wall of the house. Once inside, natural light glows through its fully glazed east elevation opening the living and kitchen to an outdoor space that overlooks an adjacent stream. The materials, textures, and volume give this space its warmth and scale. Completed as will bruder architects ltd.
