Contemporary Arizona Homes: Beyond Southwest Style

Arizona has a rich history that has influenced our homes and our style today. Pueblo styling and Mexican and Spanish influence are what we often think of with Southwest style, but with inspirations from Frank Lloyd Wright, Arizona homes have their own unique contemporary style. Inspired by the desert landscape reflecting elements of the past, contemporary Arizona homes are the style of today moving beyond Southwest style. Check out these luxurious and beautiful homes that define contemporary Arizona style:

Hillside Haven 

Contemporary Southwest style blends old with new and this Arizona home is a splendid example. Located on the desert hills of Scottsdale, this contemporary home features modern elements like concrete blocks with a metal frame and rustic wood accents blending naturally with the hillside. The open air patio and pool has a breathtaking view of the desert landscape, perfect for connecting with nature and watching the sun rise and set.

Mountain Mansion

Grand and elegant, this mountain mansion is a home for entertaining and art collectors. In true Southwest fashion, its modern exterior is reminiscent of Pueblo style homes with its flat roof and low profile. Echoing the surroundings, this modern mansion complements the environment with its earthy colors. An oasis in the desert embracing all the elements, this home has all the modern comforts and luxuries.

Bringing the Outdoors In

What better way to enjoy your natural surroundings than with grand floor to ceiling glass windows, offering beautiful vistas both near and far. It’s like having the city view as your own personal art piece. Filled with warm sunlight by day, each room is complemented with warm wood colors that define the living spaces. With the views of the Papagos and downtown, you will truly appreciate the elements of nature from this hillside abode.

Rocky Mountain Residence

The architectural angles of this modern home in the prestigious Carefree Grand View Estates are softened with Southwest style with natural wood ceilings and flagstone floors.  Broad expanses of picturesque windows give panoramic views of city lights, sunsets, mountains and the pristine desert. In true Arizona style, the home has many outdoor living areas to enjoy our year-round amazing weather. The natural colors throughout the house emulate the rugged, rocky environment, a modern residence nestled amid the boulders on Black Mountain.

Clean Lines & Rustic Details

Contemporary homes are known for their clean lines and neutral elements. If a traditional contemporary style is too stark and cold, a little southwest flavor can warm it up. This home is built with a modern style in mind but like the most of Arizona homes, a bit of the Southwest has been injected through the use of sand-like colors throughout, architectural features, and warm woods. Rustic stone pillars complement the architectural angles of the roof infusing modern looks with Southwestern style.
