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. Vast expanses of glass, clerestory windows and high alder ceilings keep the open-concept public spaces light and bright. This luxurious home exudes a calming ambiance with its warm neutral color palette inspired by the surrounding landscape.
Designed to create a beautiful backdrop to highlight the home owners’ exquisite art collection, the interiors are elegantly furnished. They feature seamless transitions between the indoors and out, making it the ideal setting for living the good life in the desert Southwest.
Judges’ Comments | The home features a creative exterior, with a curved linear wall that radiates back. The thoughtful plan really took into consideration the flow of the home and how the interior spaces interact with all of the amazing outdoor living areas.
