Frey does the desert so well....a more gentle footprint than Wright in some respects. Interior is crisply detailed.

Frey's own house:

Both of those houses are just spectacular in their simplicity and respect of site. I was fortunate enough to tour and shoot Frey II last year, and Cree last weekend.

Do you have intangible impressions to share ? Textures, temperatures, odors, sounds, etc . . .?

Funny how they keep calling this house "little known." It's up on a hill completely visible from the road below and is in both the books on Frey. Other than that, nobody knew there was a house up there!

It was unknown to me, and I expect to many others who might not have found the architect's books or happened to find themselves on the right street in the right town in the right state . . .
