A contemporary desert home is erected for a couple that wanted to "purge and simply their life." The structure is designed by Wendell Burnette Architects and is built on a hillside in Cave Creek — a town just outside of Phoenix, Arizona. Dubbed the 'Hidden Valley Desert House,' the dwelling is arranged for a seamless integration within the natural landscape.
With reference to the design brief, Wendell Burnette Architects aimed to create a budding relationship between indoor and outdoor areas. The contemporary desert home is equipped with sizable windows that allow for beautiful vistas of the surroundings which include a distant view of Phoenix, as well as saguaro and teddy bear cholla cacti vegetation.
The abode is envisioned as a "long pavilion for living."
