The “Hoffman Residence addition and remodel” presented us with an opportunity to revisit a project some twenty years after we completed the original house. Due to an empty nest, the house needed a program update. The design emphasis shifted to entertainment and family gatherings. Bedrooms were replaced with a multi-purpose entertainment room, a two thousand bottle wine cellar and a new master suit. The design theme is one of refined modernism with rich materials and clean detailing.

The “Rike Residence” is a collaboration between Baldinger Architectural Studio and Jim Rike, a contractor, with whom we have had a long and successful professional relationships.

The house is a cubist raw structure of Concrete, Steel and Glass, designed as laboratory and a container for an uninhibited living and entertaining environment.

The house flows spatially, horizontally and vertically, interconnecting the various activity centers as well as the outdoor spaces.

The end result is a masculine composition of exposed steel, concrete, wood, mechanical and electrical equipment executed in a monochromatic palate of material to serve as a back drop to a rich and eclectic art and furniture collection.

The “Sanchez Residence” is in the final stages of design.

The house is located in the Phoenix Arcadia area and replaces an older structure that has occupied the lot since the 1950’s

Designed for a young professional couple, and intended to accommodate their future needs as the family grows.

The house is centered on and takes advantage of a north facing courtyard, creating a total living environment with an expansive living space to controls view and privacy.

Other notable features are cantilevered roof, clear story windows, minimalist palate of materials and details.
