The Brown Residence by Lake|Flato Architects
By Eric • Sep 2, 2011 • Selected Work
San Antonio-based studio Lake|Flato Architects has designed the Brown residence.
Completed in 2009, this single family contemporary home is located in Scottsdale, a city in the eastern part of Maricopa County in Arizona, USA.
The Brown Residence by Lake|Flato Architects:
“Despite being located in an expansive golf community, the Brown residence celebrates stunning desert views from almost every space.
Its careful design makes this possible as views to neighboring houses are edited out focused instead on distant mountains. While the residence presents an unassuming, modest scale to the street, it steps down with
the slope of the site allowing the spaces inside to become quite generous.
Oversize pivot doors and large expanses of glass allow abundant light and air into these spaces while broad overhangs and shading devices protect them from the harsh desert sun.”
