What we are going to show you today is a house in the desert with a unique modern design. I can remember that we have featured other unique homes in the desert before too as they tried to blend in with its surrounding. Today, we will feature a house called the Desert Wing. You will understand why it is called this way as its roof is formed like the wings.

Located in Desert Mountain in North Scottsdale, Arizona is the Desert Wing that hovers over the High Sonoran desert on a one-acre golf course lot. It has a contemporary minimalist vision with a design inspired by the natural environment. Views of the outdoor area was enhanced while eliminating the view of adjacent homes. The design of the house is also an answer to the owner’s desire to have a “see-through home with a high level of privacy”. The home is split into two zones, one is for the couple requiring a very low maintenance lifestyle while the other zone is for their extensive family and friends who often visit the Arizona.

Indeed, the home stands with pride because of its unique design while rising up from the desert floor.

The materials used for the house isn’t just based on the inherent beauty and low maintenance but for their indigenous qualities too. Copper clad bold roof forms that seem to float above indoor and outdoor living spaces. It also used rammed Earth walls made of soil excavated from the site that echoes the forms of the surrounding mountain range. With this, Kendall Design Collaborative was able to come up with a home that “truly is in harmony with its site and is expressive of its unique place in the world”.
