Another great project in collaboration with Nick Ryza, Native.

The corner lot for this home is a really great lot. It had a tremendous number of huge Live Oaks.

This also presented a challenge, by angling the house on the lot, we were able to minimize the loss of trees yet get the clients everything they wanted, including the pool.

My wife Neha, & enjoyed working with Elliot. The Wealth of knowledge truly made design process fine tuned to what we could afford and what we needed / wanted. Our design had a lot of constraints all due to the site: The shape, the number of trees, the HOA rules and setbacks. He made a design happen that accommodated for all those constraints while designing for Netzero goals.

Another challenge through this entire process is that we are based out of Phoenix and we designed the entire home through online meetings. While Elliot does have a preference for communication he adapted very quickly to meet our remote needs, and effectively helped us get through the design process in the predicted amount of time.

One of the most enjoyable experience of working with Elliot is how he allowed us to really consume the design and not rushing us to make hasty decisions. I love his direct honest opinions that helped us arrive at decisions being fully informed.
