Kym Billington, NCARB
This hillside home takes advantage of the dramatic views into the Phoenix Mountain Preserve and the downtown city lights. Designed to put all of the rooms on one upper level to increase natural light, the home cantilevers over the desert to preserve the natural landscape below. All living spaces and exterior decks flow together to increase the illusion of spaciousness. The materials are beautiful native field stone, masonry, fabricated metals and a palette of intricately detailed wood interiors in warm natural finishes.
