Collection of modern, minimalist, and eco friendly architectural design for your home inspiration
Located on the semi-arid climate area of Phoenix, Arizona, architects Chen + Suchart Studio have delivered a modern minimalist Yerger residence. Spacious feel is recognized in the house as large glass walls are set to link not only between rooms but also between indoors and outdoors. A luxury swimming pool is placed inside the court along with stylish outdoor lounge that allow residents to relax and reap the sunny day of Arizona.
The master suite by contrast is a more cellular division of spaces that control views and privacy. A study is located at the same level as the entry and living space while the master bedroom and master bathroom are situated higher in section to allow for additional privacy. For reasons of privacy, the master suite is an introverted and focused series of interior spaces and exterior spaces while still maintaining a view to Camelback Mountain from the master bedroom.
The CIP concrete base houses a sunken garage and an exercise area that leads to a sunken garden in the back of the house. The exercise area can be opened up to the garden space for outdoor exercise as well. By configuring this base lower than the original grade, the project sought to minimize the impact of the vehicle as part of the primary elevation. The sunken garden allows for a cooler outdoor space which promotes outdoor exercise from the interior exercise area.
The floating volume which houses the living room and two bedrooms is a metal stud framed construction whose cladding is comprised of blind fastened 4′ X 15′ 10 gauge sheets of weathering steel. In order to minimize the economic impact of this cladding, 40,000lbs of steel were cut to size and shipped directly from the steel mill in Alabama to the job site. This strategy proved to be economic as the cost of going directly to the steel mill proved to be less than using lower quality material from a local steel supplier.
The residence has one main view to the east towards Camelback Mountain, in order to focus the views towards the iconic landmark to capture it and have it constantly presenced in the experience of the house while creating other introspective moments of experience.
The interior finishes of the project juxtapose highly refined materials with raw industrial materials in order to heighten one another’s unique qualities. The interior finishes are comprised of polished wenge millwork, non-directional stainless steel countertops, white Carrera marble, and terrazzo flooring. These finishes constantly enter a dialogue with one another by means of their configuration and junctions. Photography by Bill Timmerman of Timmerman Photography
