Arizona Residential Architects

Ten Reasons to Hire an Architect

1. An Architect can help you create and focus your dream house into a built reality. Architects see the big picture. A skilled architect can help you develop and integrate your list of requirements with the other complex factors to create a unique Arizona home just for you by prioritizing your needs.

2. An Architect is a licensed professional. Architects are educated, trained, and tested in a large range of areas, including aesthetic design, ergonomics, sociology, ecology, law, building codes, construction materials and technology. This breadth of knowledge allows foresight when evaluating competing requirements and restrictions.

3. An Architect will solve your problems with creative, elegant solutions. Architects are trained to make buildings both functional and beautiful. An architect will be able to show you alternatives that you might not have considered possible.

4. An Architect is trained in communication. An architect has experience effectively communicating through written word, drawing, and verbally with the key members of the project including clients, contractors, engineers, and authorities in the manner best suited to the situation.

5. An Architect has experience. Most architects consider architecture a passion more than a vocation. They draw on past experience. They are an integral part of the design/construction community with contacts in all the fields.

6. An Architect can make your life easier! Architects can bring pictorial suggestions to the table and assist in decisions for space planning, materials, and finishes transforming your abstract ideas into a form you can visualize.

7. An Architect is cost effective. A well-conceived, designed, and coordinated project is more economical. Changes made on paper in the design phase are much less expensive than those made during construction.

8. Architecture is a good investment. Great design sells from consumer products to cities. A well designed home has a higher resale value.

9. An Architect can make your building project environmentally friendly. Skilled architects work with the environment to create spaces that are sustainable and comply with ever demanding energy performance requirements.

10. An Architect can guide you through an entire project as your advocate. An architect will be able to assist with every aspect of a project from choosing a site, city permitting, design review board submittals to construction administration. Whether you choose to start a project from the ground up or remodel an existing space, an architect will be able to help the project run smoothly during each stage avoiding disruptive surprises.

TSONTAKISRCHITECTURE Nick Tsontakis was born at home in Kostadiana, a tiny village located off the northwest coast of Crete. He came into this world in a bedroom with corner windows overlooking the Mediterranean Sea. He grew up gazing at some of the most beautiful vistas on the planet. When his family moved to Montreal, Quebec, Canada, he marveled at the aesthetic magnificence of Old Montreal and the innovative structures and international pavilions of Expo ‘67. Living in Montreal, Nick graduated from McGill University School of Architecture with Distinction, and was the principal of Nick Tsontakis Architects from 1981 to 2001. He moved to Scottsdale and formed Tsontakis Architecture in 1996.

SWABACK

As architects and planners, what we pursue is not only an exploratory adventure, it is a high calling that is addressed in a variety of ways, and at many levels of achievement. Our commitment has been one of applying both the art and technology of architecture and planning to an extraordinarily wide array of opportunities. Advances in digital modeling and rendering software have enabled us to dynamically communicate the scale, proportion, and an overall sense of space at a much earlier stage in the design process. With these technological advances we are also able to analyze specific views, lighting effects, hourly/seasonal solar effects, and animate the operation of glazed window wall systems, and even changes in weather.

28150 N. Alma School Pkwy Suite 103-423 Scottsdale, Arizona 85262 mark@severgroup.com www.severgroup.com 480.596.0040 I create truly one-of-a-kind, site specific designs and have been doing so for 30 years. Designing and building custom homes requires a very personal and dedicated connection to the client and their wishes. Every architect in the ARA understands this connection and excels in achieving signature design and thus, real value for their clients. I have been fortunate enough to participate in the roles of client, architect, designer and builder over the years having built several homes for myself. I understand the process from each perspective which gives me insight to address any unique requirement. I utilize progressive technologies which allow me to present, convey and interact with a client or team member regardless of location. Designing and building a custom home is the ultimate reward and reflection on a lifetime of success. I understand the importance of conveying the correct statement my clients wish to make about their new home. I enjoy working with great clients wanting to create a great piece of architecture regardless of scale.

Brent Kendle

Kendle Design Collaborative designs homes that are at once poetic and pragmatic, not only enhancing the act of daily living, but elevating the spirit of those who dwell within. We design homes where a unique visual delight may be found around every corner, changing with the passing of the sun and the rhythms of nature. This we believe is living architecture, home design that celebrates the many joys of living. As an architect, I feel my primary responsibility is to clearly understand my client’s priorities, values, and aspirations, but most importantly to understand what brings them joy. Only then can I carefully craft the design and details of their new home such that it enhances their daily living, bringing them joy in their quietest moments as well as times of celebration. I hope that you will consider us for your next home design. We would be honored to work with you, where together we can design a home that brings you joy.

Valley Legacy Architects Lescher & Mahoney: Architectural Standard Setters in Arizona By Frank Aazami and David M. Brown They were as different as a Gehry arts center and a Gothic cathedral. But these two men from the Mid-West built a great Phoenix architectural firm. Before their firm merged with today’s DLR Group in 1974, Royal Lescher and Leslie Mahoney’s practice had completed 2,541 commissions, 29 listed on the National Register of Historic Places for themselves or their neighborhoods. Most Arizona communities have at least one of their buildings, commercial or residential: from Flagstaff to Ajo, Globe, Mesa, Tempe, Chandler and Phoenix and Wickenburg. Their work was stylistically and programmatically broad: schools, commercial, hospitals, banks, government buildings, churches, resorts, country clubs, low-rent housing and luxury homes. And whatever they designed, at whatever cost, in whatever style and for whom, Royal Lescher and Leslie Mahoney built quality and created for longevity. “The focus of Lescher & Mahoney’s work was serving the community, both locally in Phoenix and across the state of Arizona. Their legacy is classic designs that continue to be visible and celebrated community landmarks decades later,” says DLR Group Senior Principal Peter Rutti, AIA, NCARB, noting that the Phoenix-based firm has been commissioned to preserve a number of projects designed by Lescher & Mahoney. “Lescher & Mahoney was one of a few architectural firms who laid the groundwork for great design during the inception of what is now Phoenix,”

notes

Mark

B.

Candelaria,

AIA,

principal

of

Scottsdale-based Candelaria Design Associates, LLC. “Their designs for such iconic buildings as the Orpheum Theater, truly a timeless treasure, continue to inspire many architects in the Valley today.” “Lescher & Mahoney combined productivity, longevity and quality,” explains Donna Reiner, Ph.D., in her 2006 monograph about the firm, “Gas Stations and Chicken Coops.” As Mahoney commented one time,” she writes, “‘We never had one fall down.’” Middle America Comes to the Southwest Born in Galesburg, Illinois, August 12, 1882, Lescher graduated from 2 what is today the California Institute of Technology and first worked

in Phoenix for the distinguished Phoenix architect, Thornton Fitzhugh.

Independently minded, he opened his office in 1910 at age 28. Cowtown on the build, Phoenix had just 11,134 people. To visit his first job site for the Pendergast School District 12 miles west in Glendale, he bicycled through the desert and rode the train back to the office in downtown Phoenix. Lescher’s first large commission was the $16,300 Women’s Club of Phoenix, site of the Louis Dorr-designed Hotel Westward Ho.

And whatever they designed, at whatever cost, in whatever style and for whom, Royal Lescher and Leslie Mahoney built quality and created for longevity. In 1913, John Rinker Kibbey (1883–1963) joined the company. Four years later, Kibbey left to serve in World War I. After he shipped back to Phoenix, he designed structures such as landmark Brophy College Preparatory, 4701 N. Central Avenue, in 1928; he later returned to California to design movie sets. Mahoney was from Missouri, born in DeSoto, January 21, 1892. He graduated from Santa Clara College, today Santa Clara University in northern California. He took his first job in Los Angeles. When he heard there from a friend that Kibbey had left for military service, he told him to let Lescher know that he was available. Lescher sent Mahoney the $50 for train fare and hired him. Lescher was a superlative salesman and Mahoney an inspired designer, associates recall. The two prospered: At its height, the firm employed as many as 65, according to DLR records. Among many commercial projects in the Phoenix area were the Arizona State Capitol building legislative wings (1956), with Lew 3

Place, and the Central Methodist Church (1950), Central Avenue and Palm Lane in Phoenix. They varied their styles to suit clients’ programs, including Contemporary, Reiner explains. St. Mary’s Catholic School (1945) and the Baroque Revival-style Orpheum Theatre (1929), 203 West Adams, are Spanish Colonial Revival. Now a Phoenix treasure, the venue is one of the most elaborate of the firm’s buildings, in and out. Now with DLR Group, Paul Westlake of VanDijk, Pace, Westlake architects of Ohio was the architect for the renovation. Westlake Reed Leskosky and DLR merged in 2016. For 30-plus years, Lescher & Mahoney officed in the 11-story Art Deco Title and Trust Building, 114 West Adams Street, completed in 1930 in

The

Contemporary oval-shaped Arizona Veterans Memorial Coliseum at the State Fairgrounds, 1826 West McDowell Road, in Phoenix was completed in 1964. The U.S. Post Office, 522 North Central Avenue, is also Spanish Colonial Revival Style, and the Phoenix City Hall 1928–29, including the Maricopa County Courthouse, in conjunction with Edward F. Neild, is “Neoclassical, Spanish Colonial Revival and Pueblo Deco,” explains Reiner. That building, perhaps the firm’s masterwork, entered the National Historic Register in 1989.

The two men were opposites, while creating an unmatched Arizona architectural legacy. Lescher was a Republican, a Protestant and a businessman, Mahoney a Democrat, a Catholic and an artist. An architectural designer who had worked for the firm remembered that the two men were opposites, while creating an unmatched Arizona architectural legacy. Lescher was a Republican, a Protestant and a businessman, Mahoney a Democrat, a Catholic and an artist. Lescher died in 1957; he was 74. Mahoney continued practicing and died in 1985, age 93. At Home with Homes, Too The firm focused on commercial, educational and government contracts and less on homes. Still, their residential output is impressive. “To this day, Lescher & Mahoney homes retain historical significance as well as market strength, bringing fine returns to the seller and unique assets of ownership to the buyer,” says Frank Aazami, principal of the Private Client Group at Russ Lyon International Realty, Scottsdale. “And, when updated with today’s appliances, smart appliances, security systems and other items, they provide the new owners with the finest designs of the 20th century and the best technology of the 21st.” As a result, “Very few National Register properties designed by Lescher & Mahoney were residential,” says John Jacquemart, a Phoenix-based researcher and preservationist who catalogued the drawings of Lescher & Mahoney at the Arizona Heritage Center in Tempe.

A few of these NHR properties include the remarkable John Mason Ross home, 6722 North Central Avenue, built in 1928 and inspiringly renovated 10 years ago by Candelaria Design Associates of Scottsdale. The two original structures entered the National Register February 24, 2000. Working with Phoenix Historic Preservation (because the home is listed) Candelaria, his then business partner, Vivian Ayala, designed a contemporary conservatory to bridge the original Tudor home, featuring distinctive clinker, or sintered, bricks, with a later historically nonconforming garage added by former owners, the Don Luke family. The home is in the Orangewood community, platted in 1895 in 20-acre parcels from today's Bethany Home Road to Northern 6 5 Price Family 1955. Courtesy Chandler Museum 6 Price House, Chandler.

Avenue and 7th Avenue east to 7th Street. At this time, wealthy Phoenicians were beginning to move north of the downtown area into a more pastoral setting, providing serenity and celebrating their wealth on large rural homes along “Millionaire’s Row.” “To live in Orangewood was and is a mark of distinction,” Jacquemart says. “And the Ross home is truly an estate of significance.” Another

is

the

McCullough-Price Home in Chandler, 300 South Chandler Village Drive, near today’s Chandler Fashion Center. Originally on 350 acres, the home was designed in 1938 for William D. McCullough, a Detroit industrialist. The Pueblo Revival-style home included a faux adobe appearance, rounded corners, parapets, vigas and a front door surrounded by replica Hohokam petroglyphs.

After ownership by local businessman, Roy Lockhead, Art and Louise Price acquired the home in 1950. She was the niece of town founder Dr. Alexander J. Chandler; one of her daughters, Harriet (“Flip”), courted John F. Kennedy in her Stanford University days. Art was an attorney and business partner with Dr. Chandler. Following a $1-million renovation, led by the DLR Group, the home was opened to the public in 2007 and entered the National Historic Register. In 2018, DLR linked the earlier historical preservation of the house with the newly built Chandler Museum, Rutti explains. In a former orange grove in Phoenix, the Denison Kitchell house, 2912 East Sherran Lane, was designed in 1942 and entered the National Register in 1994. Lescher & Mahoney also designed the second Phoenix Country Club in 1920 at Thomas Road in what was then the north end of the central city; here they also designed a variety of homes, including the 1925 W. H. McCornack Home, also listed on the National Register. The Coles family had two homes here as well. 7 5

And, the 6,689-square-foot C.N. Plousard home, 3216 North Manor Drive West, built in 1937 in a French Provincial style, abuts the third fairway of the golf course in the Country Club Manor subdivision. The Caniglia Group of North & Co., Phoenix, sold the home for $2.2 million in March. Also downtown is the 1921 A.J. Smith house, 2302 North Third Street. Nearby is the 5,494-square-foot Lloyd Lakin home, also known as Palm Lane Manor, completed in 1926 at 56 East Palm Lane, at Alverado, now the city’s Arts District. Owner Dan Wilhelm says, “The basic form of the house and original interior designs, wood floors, tile work and wrought-iron masterworks are still exactly as the architects had designed and installed them nearly a hundred years ago.”

“The basic form of the house and original interior designs, wood floors, tile work and wrought-iron masterworks are still exactly as the architects had designed and installed them nearly a hundred years ago.” - Dan Wilhelm, owner Palm Lane Manor Shemer and Royal Palms Two Valley landmarks, the Shemer Art Center and the Royal Palms Inn, both began as Lescher & Mahoney-designed homes. The original H.J. Coerver home, at the southeast corner of Camelback Road and East Arcadia Lane (48th Street) in Phoenix, was built in 1919 for the foreman, or “zanjero” (water irrigator), of the company established to plant citrus fields for eventual development. On this 640-acre property at the base of Camelback Mountain, a group of developers led by Seymour Jordan planned to sell homesites. They named the area “Arcadia,” founded the Arcadia Water Company and began drilling wells, explains Shonna James, president and executive director of today’s Shemer Art Center, which provides an extensive schedule of art classes, exhibitions and other cultural offerings. They were ahead of Arcadia’s now golden time; the land was just too far out of town. The company went bankrupt, and Kansas City, Missouri, banker Henry Coerver purchased the land and the home in 1925 and hired Lescher & Mahoney to add a kitchen, living room and two bedrooms in 1925, creating a Santa-Fe mission-style home. Meanwhile, he divided the land into 40-acre parcels. The Suhr family from Oil City, Pennsylvania, purchased the 40 acres with the house in 1928, using it as a winter getaway, converted the original building into a garage (now a studio at the center), added 9 9 3216 West Manor, 1937 Lescher & Mahoney.

bedrooms, bathrooms and other improvements. In July 1984, Phoenix resident and real estate investor Martha Shemer purchased and donated the parcel and home to the city. In October that year, the historic property became the Shemer Art Center and Museum and, later, a Phoenix Point of Pride. The nearby Delos Cooke mansion, now the Royal Palms Resort and Spa, was completed in 1929 on 65 acres abutting Camelback Mountain at 58th Street. Three years earlier, businessman Delos Cooke and his wife Florence began planning their Spanish Colonial Revival-style winter home, “El Vernadero” or “Winter Haven”, to escape the cold New York winters. The 3,500-square-foot home was the largest along Camelback Mountain and featured period-style elements such as white plaster over brick, red-tiled roofs, elaborate grillwork for the windows and doorways, a two-mile-long, seven-foot-high white perimeter wall as

The mansion was surrounded by groves of citrus and palms, many remaining. After changes of ownership, the Royal Palms Inn opened on February 1, 1948; the cost was $35 a day. Twelve years later, Charles Alberding, a Chicago investor, purchased the inn and added features. Later he named business associate Pat Ryan one of the first female general managers of a U.S. resort. She opened the Royal Palms Inn year-round. In 1995, Alberding's family sold the remaining 8.9 aces of the property to Fred Unger, who began a major renovation, reopening the resort in 1997. Bricks were used from the original walls that surrounded the property and others collected from pre-1900 Chicago buildings. Trestle beams throughout are sourced from an old railroad bridge discovered in a dried-up Great Salt Lake riverbed, buried for more

than 100 years. In 1996, the Alvadora Spa opened in 2002, and the name changed to Royal Palms Resort and Spa. The since-expanded resort is now a Hyatt property. “We still use parts of the original Lescher & Mahoney property today,” explains Briana Vore, sales and events manager. “The lobby is in a bedroom, our boardroom is in the old dining room and our restaurant, T.Cook’s, is in the original kitchen.” More than 19,000 company drawings dating from the early 1900s to 1976 are curated in the Arizona Historical Society Lescher-Mahoney collection in Tempe.

I imagined how the slope has seen centuries of nature’s carving by the wind and rain. With each passing millennium, greater derees of erosion took the softer materials away leaving the more durable rock outcroppings. We can think of the home’s exterior material pallette as a contemporary interpretation of exposed rock and layers of sediment. The solid darker masonry occurs above the finish first floor level, representing the older parts of the mountain outcropping. Below finish floor is the alternating masonry striping indicating the “high water mark” and the subsequent erosion on sediment layers!

Rather than framing the distant McDowell Mountain views with a hard edge, the opaque metal overhang is dotted... serrated and bent... not unlink peering below you own eyelashes. The resulting shadow cast onto the ground appears fuzzy and dissipates the darkness into the landscape.

Although Architecture is a technical discipline, to him, it is still an art form on a human scale. Licensed in several states, with over 40 years of experience, he strives to create design work as both sculpture and a functional living environment. Every commission is unique and must meet certain criteria to satisfy a client. The process of design involves effective communication and being a good listener. "Understanding and meeting our clients' needs is probably the single most important factor in achieving success with a project. Architectural design is a very personal process ... from concept to completion." While many Architects' design work occurs within a fairly narrow design range, Hann prefers to be known for his creative solutions involving a fairly wide range of design styles. His strength is in the diversity of his work and his ability to interpret his clients' needs without stylistic parameters. James Hann Design, AIA is "Art as Architecture where the greatest satisfaction is realizing his clients' dreams."

25 YEARS

Recent news at Brissette Architects: Very exciting for us is that in honor of our 25th year as partners for this firm, we have rolled out a fresh new website. We have several new projects on the boards (shown here). Most focus is on a more local level, such as Scottsdale and Paradise Valley, although we do have projects in California and Texas. The Top of the Mountain Organic home Desert Mountain is set to complete this Spring and will be one of our most celebrated achievements. The #Taliesintrained hashtag in our social media posts - Why is that? We are of the remaining few partners who were both educated at Taliesin, and we want our social media forces to see the connection between the styles and honor the teachings of Frank Lloyd Wright’s legacy. Founding Partners,

Ron & Jeff
