Dialogue House by Wendell Burnette Architects

Wendell Burnette Architects have designed the Dialogue House near Phoenix, Arizona.

The residential was inspired by John Van Dyke’s ruminations on the phenomena of desert light specifically “colored air” and “reflected light” in his 1907 book titled “The Desert – Further Studies in Natural Appearances”.

From day and night, season to season and year to year, the Dialogue house is designed and located to witness the two volumes of light – one warm and one cool – one toward the canopy of the desert sky.

The main volume is elevated above work, guest, and the car areas and create a well-shaded volume which is projected south toward the South Mountain and Sierra Estrella Mountain ranges far across the Phoenix basin and the downtown skyline.
