Nautilus

A client moved from California to Cave Creek and wanted a desert house that would remind her of the ocean. For inspiration, I went to visit the home of Georgia O’Keefe in New Mexico. I knew water. I love the ocean. But how to transpose the element of water into the desert? What came to me was the golden mean as manifest in the nautilus, and to make the home all about curves. Click on any of the drawings to make full size. Kudos to CF for taking my sketches and rendering them in AutoCAD.
