Sturr Residence

The Sturr Residence is a load-bearing, sun-dried earthen adobe structure in the Scottsdale-Arcadia neighborhood. This residence was featured in Phoenix Home & Gardens’ Masters of the Southwest 2010 Edition, and was described as understated, sophisticated desert living.

The main room features exposed load-bearing beams and corbels which form the structure.  This house is settled into it’s site with foundation plantings consisting of various succulents, such as totem pole, twisted Cereus, night-blooming Cereus, agave’s, and other accent plantings.

The rear yard features a swimming pool, which is an elegant extension of the architecture, for it follows the plan arrangement of the kitchen and dinning room axis.
