{within works | contemporary southwest residence}

Happy Wednesday Designistas! 
How is your week coming along? And your summer? Ours has been slow, which is great because it has given us time to catch up on much needed Photography!
Today we want to share with you a project that we finished last year. It was a ground up construction, which means that when we met our client all we had was a patch of dirt to work with. We loved it! It's such an amazing experience to be with a project from beginning to end! The home owner was a bachelor who wanted a low maintenance contemporary southwest home. 
We present to you: Colonia Del Sol Residence
There were four bedrooms, 5 bathrooms, a bike room, 4 car garage, home office, outdoor shower, and gorgeous pool!

The living room, dining room, and kitchen were in an open plan full of amazing views all around. The home has all concrete floors, masonry walls, and wood beam ceilings. 

We wanted the residence to really be all about its materials and the views! Which are Gorgeous!

The dining room showcased a gorgeous masonry wall and built in bar. Really, it is all about the views! There is an outdoor patio that wraps around the front of the house and the sunsets here are unbelievable.

The custom kitchen was exquisite. Honed granite counters, slate tile backsplash with metal accents. The island stepped up to a solid butcher block counter.

Everyone that lives in the desert knows that we live to live outside. Summer months are definitely hot, but the evenings cool off, the skies clear, and we get the best sunsets and thunderstorms in the United States. We wanted our clients backyard to be a reflection of that and of him. He is an avid biker and swimmer. We wanted to create not only a space to entertain, but a place to relax and rejuvenate. 

Powder baths are some of our favorite rooms. It's a small space yet you get to make a huge impact. We chose a terra cotta wall color and designed a custom cabinet that would create clean lines and a lot of storage at the same time. We chose a colorful slate counter and bronze fixtures.

Our client needed an office away from work that he could really get things done in. This was the only room in the house that we used Mesquite wood in. Everything was custom built to our specifications and design. 

The shelving was custom built to house his most beloved treasures and of course a tv!

The master bedroom is elegant and understated. We loved finding the hand carved bed and asked local artisans to make us matching nightstands.

Similar to the master bedroom, the master bath is clean, efficient, and beautiful. Limestone counters have a smooth creamy feel and they are balanced by our custom cabinets.

We hope you enjoyed the tour!
Have a beautiful day!

A big Photography thanks to Christopher Bowden Photography.
