A 7,500 sq. ft Modern residence inspired by the stunning red rocks of Sedona, Arizona.

This 7,500 square foot modern home was designed to sit gently in the red rock landscape and over the top of two washes. To accomplish this, PHX Architecture created four distinct pods that are connected by bridges – giving this project a one-of-a-kind design element. The 8′ wide gallery with custom linear diffused skylights runs the length of the home and was designed to connect the pods while at the same time feature the homeowners art collection.

The homes 3 bedrooms, living room and dining room all sit on the north side of the gallery allowing for uninterrupted views of the stunning red rocks that Sedona is known for. The service core and secondary spaces are located on the south side of the gallery offering views of the mountain behind the home. Immediately upon entering the home, guests are greeted by a gorgeous 5′ wide x 10′ tall pivot door and views beyond belief.

The zero edge swimming pool is rotated to be cantered on castle rock, a well-known rock formation in the area while at the sometime turning towards the rest of the home becoming a water feature that can be viewed from the large covered patios that extend the indoor living space into the outdoors.

The design embodies ‘living architecture,’ meaning that the home compliments its surroundings, the four pod design connected by bridges not only give this project a unique design element, but also allows for the residence to effectively sit hillside – capturing the one-of-a-kind red rock views that few people get to experience. The home was designed to sit delicately on the site and nestle into the natural Sedona vegetation.
