Luxurious Shanholt Residence, Arizona

Shanholt Residence has been designed by Scottsdale-based studio Brissette Architects. The stunning luxury home is located in the North Scottsdale, Arizona, USA.

According to the architects: “The objective was to serve the client’s brief and their desire to keep it simple; to find a way to express a simple elegance celebrating the potential of the land, and to solve the technical problems that went hand in hand with the drama. There were complex drainage issues of significant down mountain flows that had to be reckoned with as well as stringent design guideline standards set forth by the community. The goal was to achieve a working solution that seamlessly expressed a simple but contemporary Arizona home that became of its site.

“Rectilinear forms as counterpointed by circular elements were chosen to express the structure and to organise its flow and living spaces. The details of the contemporary Arizona house follow suit as illustrated in fireplace designs and fenestrations. The exterior is done in stone, stucco and metal, yet remains warm and inviting. Interior space is woven together by use of random flagstone flooring throughout the common areas which blend into outdoor spaces. The client’s great choices of walnut doors and millwork, granites, and tile further enhance a simple strength of expression.

“The success of the project is ultimately determined by the proud and satisfied client who knows they have something special. This is the litmus test of the moment and the hope of creating an enduring architecture over time.” Images courtesy of Mark Spomer.
