Daniel’s Home Remodel

about the design

Daniel purchased a home that was initially conceptualized in the late 50s by local modernist architect Al Beadle and built in the Paradise Gardens neighborhood of Phoenix. He commissioned us to lead the design effort in updating the entire exterior and interior for modern living.


  • 8 foot ceilings, flat roof profile, large overhangs, floor to ceiling glass, masonry block walls with special block wall features, and an open carport were existing details/materials proposed to remain on behalf of the historical modern intensions for "good living"  that this home offered within its original design.
  • The east eave was proposed to be modified into sweeping curves to highlight a new private pool feature for meditation and the existing kidney shaped pool for social activities.
  • Interior lighting, electrical, plumbing, and mechanical systems were upgraded for current conveniences, for Daniel's preference for simple clean lined aesthetics, and respectfully for Al's initial design.
  • Like much of our work, we supported our design with sketching and  three dimensional computer aided design per the software "Sketch Up". Of course we did not forget to give some special attention to "Sully" (protector and labrador).
