Inspired by the landscape of canyons and desert hills, I designed this house that almost looks like a bird ready to take flight from its rocky perch. The dramatic rooflines of this project help to shield the interior spaces from the hot desert sun.
I had sketched my idea last night (top right) and then made a more finished drawing (bottom right) this morning and colored it in with my copic markers (bottom left.) I envision the top floor to be a warm great room with expansive views of the landscape. There's also a large deck off the top floor, nicknamed the sky deck because it seems to be floating in the sky. Half a level down and off to the side is a guest wing, complete with its own little porch for watching the sunrise. The middle level would be a private master suite, also with breathtaking views. And last but not least is the studio on the lowest level with lots of natural light and its own little deck.
If walls could dream... they'd dream of houses that could almost take flight!
