| With nearly 7,000 sf of transparent planar architecture, In Plane Sight encapsulates — by a horizontal bridge-like architectural form —180-degree views of Paradise Valley, Camelback Mountain, the city of Phoenix, and its surrounding mountain ranges. Large-format wall cladding, wood ceilings, and an enviable glazing package produce an elegant, modernist hillside composition. 

The challenges of this 1.25-acre site were a site elevation change exceeding 45 feet and an existing older home, which was demolished. The client program was straightforward: modern and view-capturing, with equal parts indoor and outdoor living spaces. A glass entry door provides a glimpse of a private bridge connecting the master suite to outdoor living, highlights the vista beyond, and creates a sense of hovering above a descending landscape. Indoor living spaces enveloped by pocketing glass doors open to outdoors. The raised peninsula pool is a centerpiece for the outdoor living environment and the connection point between lower-level entertainment spaces (home theater and bar) and upper outdoor spaces.
