Spiral Architects’ First Project at Silverleaf: A challenging Horseshoe Canyon site marks Spiral Architects entry into Silverleaf.

The residence is positioned to take maximum advantage of the beautiful views down Horseshoe Canyon, while gracefully integrating itself into the challenging topography of the site.

The main house incorporates a Master Suite with sitting room, three additional bedrooms (two on the upper level), Craft and “Flex” rooms (Fitness, Media, or other space to be determined during design), and a Family Room which opens to the main Pool on the lower level. The Owner Office is accessible directly from the main Auto Arrival Court to facilitate “in-home” meetings without sacrificing privacy. The main pool is located near the main “public” areas of the house (Kitchen, Family Room, Flex Room) to facilitate its use during entertaining, without impinging on the home’s more private areas.

The Guest Casita incorporates its own sitting room, and has its own sheltered parking area well separated from the Main House, to allow guests to come and go without disturbing the Main House’s occupants, as well as accommodating guest visits when the Owners are away.

As both Lead Designer and Project Architect, Gene looks forward to continuing work on the project during 2014.

General Contractor: Name Withheld by Request

  • It was “photo day” yesterday over at our 1931 adobe house project in Paradise Valley! Thanks to @karenrappinteriors for helping make the house look it’s best. No spoilers so just b/w of iPhone snaps for now!

  • Might be a great millwork color/wall tile combo for one of the bathrooms in our Silverleaf addition!
