'Boulders' is a new 2400 SF house that sits in the afternoon shadow of Lone Mountain in North Scottsdale. The design was inspired by a boulder outcrop on the site, where three boulders created a protected, shaded area where animals found respite from the desert sun. Two bedroom wings support a large, cantilevered roof which covers the indoor and outdoor living areas. The bedroom wings are rotated to create a pool courtyard and frame views of the desert and Lone Mountain. Openings in the patio roof allow hot air to exhaust and filter sunlight, creating unique shadows throughout the year.
