This Scottsdale, Arizona home by Oz Architects with interiors by David Michael Miller Associates. Modern family needs and aged Mediterranean patina in a rural farmhouse are a recipe for an ideal home. There is a central courtyard with a pool, which gives ample opportunity to connect the inside with the outside. A series of intimate spaces, not large open spaces, ensures that the house, although large, is more human. I like the interiors – calm, rustic, traditional and in cool, warm beige tones. The open outdoor terrace invites you to sunbathe and swim in the cool, stone-decorated pool. New and yet old, relaxed and yet sophisticated.
