With its modern vibe harkening back to Palm Springs style, Stone Radius is recognizable by its low, linear architecture; distinctive white limestone cladding; and soft-arching curvature. Located in Paradise Valley, Ariz., the 6,200-square-foot home is sited so that almost every room has a view of Camelback Mountain.
Graceful in form, the residence is designed to mimic the radius of the circular cul de sac on which it lives. Only a handful of walls in the three-bedroom residence are straight. Instead, an almost imperceptible curve defines the home.
Gorgeous white Freska limestone imported from Turkey transforms indoor/outdoor walls into massive works of textural art made of beautiful brick-like forms in various sizes and patterns. In almost every room, vast expanses of glass and pocketing doors look out to a serene yet minimalistic landscape that suits the home’s clean lines.
Generous patio spaces include a backyard barbecue/eating area off the kitchen, several lounging spots, and a cozy conversation area with a two-sided fireplace that looks out to a horizontal pool with a linear fire feature that extends along its back wall. And just off the dining room is an intimate patio with a contemporary firewall.
Judges’ Comments | This outdoor area provides a soothing and elegant space to retreat. The design is very clean, and features great heights and texture.
