Ultra-Modern work and home space


Three or four years ago, I toured this place when it was part of a open house home tour for a local charity.  It had an interesting layout with a work space on the lower level and residence on the two upper floors.  There is quite a lot of glass with views in every direction.    Right now, it's sitting here on this Scottsdale corner completely empty.  There isn't a for sale sign anywhere but, I'm guessing it is for sale.


It's neighbor house is this modest and well tended brick bungalow making quite a contrast between the two properties.  Both are located in the old town Scottsdale area so I'd say they are both on some prime property.

If there is no sign, I can't buy it. I prefer the bungalow anyway.

I probably couldn't afford to buy it but that's alright, I wouldn't want to. It is a distinctive looking place. Looks more like an office building.

Aren't there any zoning laws in Scottsdale? How could they allow that huge blocky thing in a residential neighbourhood of much smaller homes? It's not an ugly building but it doesn't really fit, does it?

It's huge, Sharon! I prefer the bungalow too.

Quite a modern design!

It is nice, but I'd rather have the bungalow too.

A building like this empty? In Scottsdale? I bet there is a story behind it, a divorce or death or some other calamity.

I do like modern design.

I wouldn't mind living there! Love the big windows.

You couldn't get more different styles in architecture Sharon :) Will be interesting to see what happens here, bet the owners of the bungalow will be wondering also!

I wonder if they built something that was too much tied to their specific circumstances and not well adapted to what the average buyer of such a home might want. Even though I am quite traditional and wouldn't want as modern a design as that, I would think that many potential buyers with modern tastes would at least want to give it a look.
