The Jarson Residence was designed by the Will Bruder + Partners architectural practice for two estate professionals living in Paradise Valley, Arizona with their two sons and the passion they have for contemporary architecture was brought into the project.
The residence is next to a city mountain preserve and the desert landscape is embraced by the structure through the use of weathered steel and copper for its exterior. The house is oriented toward the northeast to ensure a good view of the McDowell Mountains and its geometry is that of a simple two-story volume with a shed roof and deep overhangs.
The exterior has a steel vessel acting as a swimming pool and there is a shaded raised terrace near it. Inside, the entrance leads to the living and dining spaces with a media chamber and a potter’s studio also on the ground floor, while the upper level hosts the home office and bedrooms.
