Sonoran Desert House by Wendell Burnette Architects

Designed by Wendell Burnette Architects, the Desert Courtyard House is an outstanding private residence in the Sonoran Desert, Arizona.

“It seems very contradictory but this luxurious home blends perfectly with its harsh environment. The structure was built using soil excavated from the site. The concrete and rammed earth walls fit perfectly to the desiccated, earthy surroundings. The roof was clad with weathered steel. When seen from above, the roof appears like a deep shadow in the landscape. As inconspicuous and almost hidden from the outside, as extraordinary and generous appears the house from the inside. A large courtyard forms the heart of the house.”
