I wouldn’t mind living in Arizona if this were my house

“Steel in the Desert

starting my meme of unconventional homes, we direct your attention to Blank Studio’s Xeros Residence. Completed in 2005, this house uses its location in Phoenix, Arizona, to maximum effect. Positioned on a narrow lot, the house is composed of two long bars stacked one upon the other. Long banks of glass allow for great vistas, and the location of the main living space on the second floor maximizes the view.

The best part is the rusted perforated steel scrim that covers sections of the house, offering both shade and an elegant take on industrial buildings of the Wild West. It’s an elegant take on the raw beauty of the desert.” – Chad Smith
