AIA Home of the Year: 6th House

This house won the AIA home of the year award. It is by Will Bruder and no inside photos were allowed. It was built on the side of a hill in Paradise Valley. It is mostly copper cladding and glass on the outside. There were a lot of natural looking stairs and paths around the house.
The owners had a guitar collection and he was a ceramic artist. So they ended up with some specially built guitar storage and a cool ceramic studio. They also had a really cool doggie door.
Lots of interesting uses of some basic materials. I really liked the vent covers over all the air ducts. They just looked like a wire mesh. It was pretty cool.
