Modern & elegant design showcased at Bird’s Nest home

Scottsdale-based architectural practice, Brent Kendle, has designed the Bird’s Nest project. The private home is located in Scottsdale, Arizona, US, and boasts elegant and modern design features.

This luxury Scottsdale home is characterised by strong geometric forms reminiscent of mid-century modern architecture with influences from Richard Neutra and Rudolph Schindler. The guiding principles of the modern masters are evident in the building’s clean simplicity and sophisticated integration into the site.

According to the architects: “The use of natural materials and the seamless relationship of interior to exterior spaces create an airy feeling of openness and an expansive quality. The large open space of the great room and its direct relationship to the adjacent pool terrace serves as the organising principal.

“This tall central volume has an unobstructed visual link to the kitchen and dining spaces as well as to both the enclosed front courtyard and the pool terrace. All rooms, including ‘birds nest’ on the second floor, have immediate access to a private courtyard, terrace or exterior space that give the residence an intimate scale.

“The native desert plants and the trees serve as counterpoint to soften the bold geometry and rectilinear building forms. The site walls are thoughtfully integrated into the landscape design creating serene courtyards while maintaining the owner’s desire for privacy.”
