Outdoor Room


Outside In


Paradise Valley, Ariz.

Architect/Designer | Drewett Works

Builder | Bedbrock Developers, LLC

Interior Designer | Ownby Design

Photographer | Werner Segarra

The clients’ priority of ensuring their friends would enjoy their home implied a design program with seamless movement between indoor and outdoor entertaining spaces. With Camelback Mountain a short distance away, the architect oriented the back of the house, where most entertaining would take place, to take in the spectacular view. An exterior living room with a 25-foot-tall glazed retractable pocket wall adjoins the interior’s great room and kitchen and opens to the rear facade, literally bringing the outside in.

Connecting the house to the landscape are vertical negra cantera stone stacks, which bridge between exterior and interior. A bar, located between the kitchen and outdoor living, becomes the hub of activity while entertaining.

From the Judges
This outdoor living space certainly blurs the lines between indoor and outdoor. The forms of the landscape harmoniously relate to the forms of the architecture, and it feels like one complete thought.
