The second Estancia project had commanding views of Pinnacle Peak, city lights and giant rock formations behind the home site. Other huge boulders existed in the building envelope. Some of these were designated hillside conservation areas and the home had to be designed around them.
Brissette Architects designed a two-story home with all copper roofs that included an oak staircase built by Ernst. The negative edge of the swimming pool created a 10-foot high waterfall facing the glass walls in the stairwell of the home.
A giant boulder in the area of the master bathroom was allowed to remain and formed a wall of the walk-in shower.
Extensive low voltage lighting accented the split face concrete block walls inside and out as well as the white oak cabinets and granite counter tops.
