Burnette Studio residence

The highly collectable volumes in this series each focus on a single important contemporary building selected for its unique character, innovative design, or technical genius. Buildings of various types and sizes are included, from small residences to expansive museums, detailing the evolution of the design and the construction process from initial concept to finished building. Featured are photographs, sketches, drawings, and details alongside an essay by the architect on the design process and an essay by a well-known architectural critic on the project's design significance. The studio residence of Wendell Burnette Architects is designed to be like an oasis in the Arizona desert, with an interior garden in the entryway full of light, shade, and water. Wendell Burnette's travels in Europe and Mexico are evident in the international, timeless style found in his architecture. The building is the physical embodiment of the firm's philosophy, which is the desire to create spaces that engage people. Wendell Burnette delivers architecture that is both uniquely appropriate and timelessly valuable to the client and the user. Wendell Burnette Architects is based in Phoenix, Arizona.
