Canyon Shadow’s organic design nestles into the north-facing slope of this breathtaking two-acre parcel. The site plan is encompassed on three sides by serrated granite bluffs, giving the development its iconic name. This private elevated basin is one of the premiere lots in the development, with both framed canyon views and distant vistas of Paradise Valley.
This project embodies southwestern contemporary design with an organic stone plinth that grounds the program into the hillside. Horizontal steel blades cantilevering above the desert floor provide shade in the harsh climate while maximizing indoor and outdoor living.
The palette draws warmth from the canyon geology, allowing the project to blend harmoniously with the pristine desert. The design amplifies and channels views from all spaces while providing an impressive show car garage concealed into the stone plinth, with oversized pocketed doors that enrich the organic design.
This sets the stage for the sensational two-story glass atrium with floating stairs, double-height pivot door, and floating glass bridge. The core of the living and entertainment space are situated on the western wing, capturing desert sunrise views and allowing for seamless flow to the elevated outdoor terrace and pool deck.
