Roble Residence

The Roble residence adorned the cover of Phoenix Home & Garden magazine for the Masters’ of the Southwest 2010 issue, where Clint Miller was honored.   The residence is a courtyard design which incorporates a motor court, garages, swimming pool and backyard views to a natural Sonoran wash. The plan is very efficient.

The architectural character is of a rural European courtyard which looks to have been expanded over time.  The roof is a multi-colored, two piece, mission clay tile which incorporates a heavy-stacked eve detail.

The home is of a human scale with a deeply recessed multi-paneled front door framed by a richly detailed concrete surround. The frame detail is similar to that of the early 1900’s Spanish motifs.

The components of this house were derived from the programmed needs for this family rather than realtor driven values which mandate size and eliminate in order to obtain value. To this end, the home’s true spirit comes forth warm and rich in detail.
