This single family home located in Paradise Valley, Arizona is a modernization and addition to a 1960s era ranch house. Additions include a new walk-in closet for the master suite, a new garage, and casita. The existing garage was converted to a game and entertainment room. An existing rear porch was rebuilt with raised clerestory roof to create a great room with incredible daylighting. This project was truly a collaboration between architect and owner. Marc and Melissa Buhrig hired In*Situ to help them transform the aging ranch house they had recently purchased in Paradise Valley. With a singular vision, the Buhrigs and In*Situ took on the challenge of modernizing this 60s era ranch house into a unique contemporary home.
Marc and Melissa, who have renovated several of their homes, carefully supervised the construction to ensure the details of the design vision were executed flawlessly. Marc personally designed and executed a number of the details including the front entry gate and the new kitchen. The primary material palette for the exterior of the home is a cementitious plank rain screen system, coupled with a rusting cortex siding and stucco. The perimeter wall for the property was executed in a mix of cortex siding used on the house and concrete blocks.
The Redwing House was awarded an AIA Honorable Mention Award in Non-Commercial Architecture for excellence in residential design in 2014.
