Another covered terrace. This roof and pillar is reflected in a cement-colored vitrified ceramic tile named "Memory Mood," which has been supplied by Terra Nova Ceramics.

In homage to the traditions of Richard Neutra and Gregory Ain who built extensively in the area, the form of the 2,600-square-foot house, which includes an outdoor pool, emerged from the concept of building incrementally upward in steps along the slope.
This private outdoor space would be otherwise unavailable within a hillside home.
The courtyard has a serene sitting area and frames views into the house and straight through to the other side.
"My client’s highest priority was building a pool," says Hannah. "The property had 2 flat acres—rare in this neighborhood—which was ideal for a pool. We were able to do a very simple and modern granite pool with a beautiful contrast of concrete and decking... and still have room in the back yard for a giant vegetable garden."
The 2,466 square foot, two-level home features three bedrooms and two-and-a-half baths.
The fenced-in backyard includes outdoor dining and a small green-roofed storage unit.

Hana Bea, 6, follows the concrete pavers that lead from the front yard to the side entrance.
"The homeowners hoped to transform their lot into a unified, beautiful, indoor-outdoor oasis linking their home, yard, and a new backyard shed in a designed experience where every detail would come together to compose the many smaller sub-spaces into an integrated whole," notes the design firm.
Concrete pavers line the new hardscape, which steps up to a deck built of ipe wood. Ipe wood has also been used for the built-in benches and fencing.
The bi-fold glass wall opens up to, and celebrates, the pool house's natural setting.
Outdoor Living
The backyard is a structured and geometric landscape. The fire pit doubles as a drainage pond for rainwater. Eventually, the ivy will completely hide the black stucco so one is surrounded by vegetation.

The new patio connects to a fire pit lounge area via the wood walkway. Naber worked with McCullough Landscape to fashion the cement and rock patio. Decomposed granite replaced the grass, and Naber planted succulents from her wedding alongside cacti and native plants for a more drought-tolerant landscape.
"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.
The downstairs garden space offers another outdoor escape.
The huge backyard has a newly added "rec room" and multiple entertaining areas.
The addition of an alfresco tub is perfect for relaxing on starry desert evenings.
Back patio
The kitchen bar counter extends out to the patio, creating a great space for entertaining.
Floor-to-ceiling windows accentuate the home’s indoor-outdoor flow and connect the first-floor dining room to a patio. The vintage Russell Woodard dining set came from the Brooklyn Flea, and the Sterling II barbecue is by Tec.
The wraparound porch leads to a sunken backyard with a pool and outdoor shower where the kids can rinse off their surfboards.
The wraparound porch is enclosed in custom unfinished spruce, and match the slated look of the World Market chairs. MacInnis says that her custom concrete firepit has been a great place to entertain.
Taking cues from a Japanese-influenced slatted screen applied to the house’s facade, Hufft Projects applied a ring of ipe wood around the perimeter of this outdoor firepit.
