Hellooooo there. I can’t believe Christmas is less than two weeks away! We just got our tree yesterday and I’ve barely made a dent in my shopping list.

Hellooooo there. I can’t believe Christmas is less than two weeks away! We just got our tree yesterday and I’ve barely made a dent in my shopping list. Every year I try to simplify and savor the holiday season but inevitably it sneaks up on me and then I’m rushing around with a million things to do. (First world problems, I know.)

But anyway. The last few weeks have been super busy (hence the less frequent posts) and included a short trip down to Phoenix for Reinvention 2011, a conference sponsored by Hanley Wood (who puts out Residential Architect among other publications). It was a great experience filled with inspiring speakers (Will Bruder! Rick Joy! Wendell Burnette! Jones Studio! Lake+Flato!) and good conversation with other residential architects. We packed a lot into four days and thought you guys might be interested in some of the things we saw. The first day of the conference included a bus tour of five modern homes in and around Phoenix. The climate and geography of Phoenix is nearly the polar opposite of Seattle so it was interesting to see first hand the different design challenges and materials used. Since this post is heavy on the photos, I’ll keep the text limited to the project name and architect, but feel free to leave a comment if you have any questions! 

Dialogue House [Wendell Burnette Architects]

Xeros Residence [blankstudio architecture]

Cedar Street Residence [colab studio, llc]

Hill/Shepard Residence [Will Bruder + Partners, Ltd.]

Lacey Residence [Jones Studio]

We’ll be back later this week for more architectureness in ”phoenix, part two”.
