The Pond House, designed by Will Bruder and partners limited, is a majestic piece of architecture enclosed in a breath-taking rock outcrop mounting a swimming hole. It makes a beautiful connection between two contrary parts of nature; the Sonoran Desert and its riparian microcosm.
A cascading, elegant concrete fountain greets visitors as it represents the focal point once making the peaceful stride of entering this house. The steel and curvilinear stonewall of this home creates an illustrative canyon where water calmly flows into a flagstone stair. The opposite curved arcs creates a funnel into the house’s entry foyer that alludes a feeling of ancient ruins from previous cultures.
