This Wildly Contemporary Home in the Arizona Desert Took 12 Years to Build
By: Mandion Global
This contemporary desert estate in Arizona, is a liveable piece of art that blends into its surroundings. Its design centers around private landscaping and features pivoting glass doors opening onto outside spaces.
Dubbed “The House of Doors,” this Sonoran Desert house lies in a development of homes, just outside Scottdale, and is backdropped by statuesque cacti and boulders. It was built using rammed earth building techniques and features cut-out shapes, a spa bath with a glass reclining chair, and an onyx indoor/outdoor bathroom.
This home is truly a piece of art that you can live in, from the construction technique and glass walls throughout, to the masterfully built-in furniture, said selling agent Dan Wolski. “My favorite part is the [primary] shower room door that pivots to become an indoor/outdoor space. The whole house has been constructed and engineered like a fine Swiss watch.”
