This weekend retreat builds itself into the desert landscape adjacent a natural wash. Stepping down into the residence from desert environment, the living areas of the home are at the level of the cool, tree filled oasis. Tucked under an asymmetrical gabled roof, a long curving stone wall anchors the residence to its site. Ideal for weekend entertaining and relaxing, the spaces of the home open onto a deck directly overlooking the wash. This relationship of house to site accommodates the client's desire for a place of sanctuary and contemplation.
