Oriented to harness the sun, frame views and capture breezes, the house organizes its landscapes into distinct vignettes. In much the same way a photographer crops an image, the house organizes the landscape into more intelligible formats to focus and celebrate the natural environment.
Emanating from the challenges of the site, an ethic of building with minimal disruption to the natural environment, and the client’s brief - the Levin Residence results in three simple volumes hovering quietly above the desert floor.
The clients asked for a universally accessible home in which they could be fully immersed in the landscape, in constant engagement with the serenity and re-energizing power of the Sonoran Desert and its sky.
