Inspiration on the Drawing Board: Bird Street Lot II

Bird Street Estates are large lots narrow lots with unparalleled views of Mummy Mountain located in Paradise Valley, Ariz. These long lots with challenging desert arroyos created unique footprints that were strategically positioned to capture distant views.

The juxtaposed bars separated by the glass entry portal help shift the program from front yard to backyard. A dramatic entry experience flanked by water features invites attention inwards before opening up into the great room living space. The framed dining room creates a formal allure that adds to the sophisticated design.

With indoor-outdoor living in mind, this design appeals to a broad audience. Earthy materials, manicured landscape and captivating views make this a one of a kind.

Judges’ Comments | For a home of this scope and size, the overall design is more understated than expected, with unique features to help it stand out. The xeriscaping and water features in the front complement the stone facade, while the expansive backyard provides ample outdoor living space and indoor/outdoor connections.
