Nestled between boulders on a steep desert mountainside, this home opens to views in 360 degrees.  The project is designed for comfortable living through the thoughtful design of the floor plan and numerous energy conscious systems within the residence.  Solar for electric and water heating are hidden by the butterfly roofs, the first siphonic rainwater harvesting system in Arizona provides rainwater to underground storage tanks while super insulated walls and glazing create a comfortable thermal environment.   Daylight reaches all areas of the three-level structure and natural materials define the finish package inside and out.
