Outside In

Home of the Year

Paradise Valley, Ariz.

Architect/Designer | Drewett Works

Builder | Bedbrock Developers, LLC

Interior Designer | Ownby Design

Photographer | Werner Segarra

Positioned near the base of iconic Camelback Mountain, Outside In is a modernist home celebrating the love of outdoor living Arizonans crave. The design inspiration was honoring early territorial architecture while applying modernist design principles.

Dressed with undulating negra cantera stone, the massing elements of Outside In bring an artistic stature to the project’s design hierarchy. This home boasts a never-seen- before feature: a re-entrant pocketing door, which unveils virtually the entire home’s living space to the exterior pool and view terrace. A timeless chocolate-and-white palette makes this home both elegant and refined. Oriented south, the spectacular interior natural light illuminates what promises to become another timeless piece of architecture for the Paradise Valley landscape.

From the Judges
This home is a great example of desert contemporary and uses textural materials reminsicent of the local landscape in all the right places, bringing the outside in and offering a seamless transition from inside to out. It has really clean lines, is beautiful and thoughtfully consistent, and overall is very well thought out.
