"There are many silo houses out there, but the purity of the cylinder breaks down when interior execution is does not align," says Christoph Kaiser. "For the interior, I wanted to remain committed to something of the same breadth."
The remote, desert enclave sits just 700 feet from the tallest building in downtown Phoenix.
A zinc-cladding system has been incorporated above the north-facing wall as a reference to the agricultural buildings in the local area.
Although the home's historic front facade needed to be preserved, the back of the residence was ripe for a remodel. The architects cladded the exterior in eastern cedar. The wood is offset with large expanses of glass, as well as yellow accents to add a playful atmosphere.
Chong left enough space in the 16-foot-wide backyard for a garden and comfortable dining area.
Viewing Decks and Infinity Pool
The kitchen bar counter extends out to the patio, creating a great space for entertaining.
An original 1957 California Ranch by Kemper/Nomland has been painted black and transformed into a pool/guest house.
The rooftop pool and bar lured us back to the hotel. We couldn’t wait to experience more mind-blowing views of the New York surround while laying poolside in the sun. It’s a perch that can’t be beat in terms of the eyeful you get, but the views are so epic they dwarf the already small three-feet-deep plunge pool that seemed to be there mostly for standing in while taking selfies. But our kids swam and splashed in the water while we ordered from the rooftop bar menu—a lobster roll, a hamburger, French fries with tarragon aioli, a Dark and Stormy and more than one glass of Quinn Vins de Pays des Maures Rose.

You'd never designed for special needs children before the Bancroft residence, how did you interpret the clients' needs?

Jack Hawkins, architect: I would like to say I did tons of research, but I didn't. I went with the parents' lead. I took most of my design cues from them. They're the immediate caregivers, they know their children and about autism. They did all the research and told me what was important.

A rough board-formed concrete wall hems in the courtyard garden creating an organic looking transition to the wild scrub oak beyond.
“Sustainability is very important to us,” lead architect Heather Dubbeldam says. “It is easy to design with passive systems, to use passive sustainable principles to influence the design and layout of the house.” Her team reduced the need for air conditioning and artificial lighting through carefully positioned doors and windows that draw in natural light and breeze. New insulation, low-flow plumbing fixtures, and low-energy lighting also minimize the homeowners’ dependence on utilities.
