The Skalicky Residence

Recently completed project at the base of the McDowell Mountains (Greater DC Ranch area). Prairie style architecture influenced by the early work of FLW. This home forms a union with its site by preserving the native landscape around the perimeter. The home is a stretched rectangle so as to conform to the contours of the mountain and touch gently on this hill-side site. The biggest design challenge was to provide for firetrucks access and space for the vehicle to turn around and go back down the hill. The home has incredible views of North Scottsdale, and one can see small jets landing and taking off from the Scottsdale airport.
