Northern Arizona's Mountain Living Magazine


I

n the mid-1990s,

Jason Scott, a native of North Dakota, developed a case of wanderlust and decided to indulge his passion to explore and search for antiques and artifacts native to the islands of Indonesia. With an adventurous spirit, the intent of securing materials for his private collection as well as his growing furniture business took him on journeys that lead him to the love of his life and was the impetus to design and build a home so identifiable in its mastery, it earned the moniker in the architectural community as “Flagstaff House.�

Northern Arizona's Mountain Living Magazine


solidified his desire to grow his design company and affirmed his plans to someday build the home he dreamed of. Scott found a connection with the people and the culture of Madura. The handful of workers under Jason’s tenure became like family, working alongside him to master their craft. Jason created a method of distressing wood through glass scraping that is now a hallmark in his designs. The locals he employed soon became proficient in wire brushing, waxing, rubbing and state-of-the-art kiln drying; all aspects of an intricate ten-step design process that are characteristic of a Jason Scott build. The handful of men that began the journey with Jason are now considered craftsmen and artisans in their own right. Today, there are three warehouses in Java that employee more than a hundred local residents of Madura.

Madura to Flagstaff

With little money and even less knowledge of these vast islands, Jason Scott settled in the small village of Madura. He rented a small hut and created a makeshift workshop. The structure had a terra-cotta roof but lacked traditional walls. He improvised using scraps of wood and bamboo to provide some designation for privacy and space. Scott designs and manufactures handmade furniture from reclaimed materials, so it was an ideal situation to live and work on the premises. He lived in the most primitive manner;

without basic utilities and often with the men he hired to help him in his search for reclaimed teak and old iron. It was an adventure seeking large salvaged pieces and remnants from structures long abandoned. Some trips consisted of 14-hour rides on gravel roads and ferry rides to ports he was unfamiliar with, among people whose language he did not speak. Scott was drawn to the tribal influence and in search of pieces such as large slabs, thick tops and unique design and details. These expeditions

In Indonesia, Jason met his wife, Risti. A native of Java, she is fluent in three languages. While Jason is at the creative helm, Risti helps manages the business aspect of Jason Scott Designs and handles everything from the Indonesian payroll to cataloguing exports now located at their Phoenix headquarters. After returning to the States, Risti and Jason were ready to bring Madura to Flagstaff. They chose Flagstaff because it offered four seasons and they loved the vibe of the town. The goal was to create a residence that captured their passion, work and the elusive beauty of the villages they loved. They settled on a three-quarter-acre lot in Pine Canyon. After researching design companies and architects, The Scotts paired with the architect firm Centre Sky. Plans and designs for the home were created in their offices and the dirt f loors of a hut in Madura. The home showcases Indonesian f lare with modern mountain and rustic contemporary style. With monoslope roof lines and the marriage of stone, iron, wood and glass, Flagstaff House is one of the most artistic builds in northern Arizona.

Although the Scotts had been procuring pieces for years, the 7,300 square foot residence would require numerous visits back to Indonesia to harvest more salvaged materials and finds needed to construct the home they envisioned. The residence has five bedrooms and five and a half bathrooms. Each door is unique, with locks that are of traditional design to the Southeast Asian country they love. This three-level home has soaring ceilings with reclaimed wood beams, offset by teak flooring. Antique metal panels surround the facade of the fireplaces, and are also used

as cladding on portions of the home’s exterior. Each wall inside the home has its own story, each panel has a tale of its acquisition. If you look closely enough, you can see the layers of exposed wood that were painstakingly glass scratched. It took roughly one year to gather the necessary posts, beams, panels and fascia to start the process of bringing the vision from paper to soil.

Showcase Level

Among elements that declare this home a showcase, are recovered iron panels that are more than 150 years old.

They were shipped from their original home on a Javanese sugar plantation. Two-hundred-year old ironwood from a railroad bridge in Borneo has been repurposed to be utilized as posts and beams to support the massive deck that offer the views of Flagstaff.  A “ joglo”— or a carved rooftop pavilion—was designed, crafted and placed strategically under a glass catwalk to highlight the stacked layers of intricate carvings and expose the integrity of the wood. When entering the home, the foyer’s ceiling is the underside of the joglo. It is here that visitors to the home can study the depths of hand carved designs that are stacked and layered to form this conical roof that is indigenous to the Southeast Asian island. The glass bridge on the second f loor allows one to appreciate the details, as if on display, settled beneath the glass. The interior also boasts a Master tub that was created from a boulder. Placed directly in front of a hand carved stone wall depicting the image of a tree and its branches. A stone maiden stands pouring water from a vessel into the tub. Opaque windows let light filter into this room, which offers as much art as it does function. Massive curved slabs of wood hang from industrial accents


off hammered beams to divide the sleeping quarters and create a welcoming retreat. Dramatic lighting enhances this space with a fireplace and access to the deck. A theme throughout the home is incorporating large scale pieces of wood that are implemented in numerous ways. The kitchen alone demonstrates this premise with an enormous teak table with molten inlay and a curved island that anchors the room. The home was completed last year and although young in its completion, it is as old as the history of the wood itself, and as rich as the stories of the 200 people who helped craft it. Flagstaff House is a culmination of the passion, beauty and soul of the Indonesian archipelago.

TEE UP

With Healthy Tricks Some Ways to Improve the Golf Game and Step It Up on the Green By Starla S. Collins

E

ach day, thousands of people around the world grab their clubs and putters and take to the green grass to play a round of golf. In fact, the National Golf Foundation reports there are more than 25 million golfers worldwide. The highest percentage of golfers are age 50 and older, followed by those age 30 to 49. Regardless of age or a favorite golf course, one thing is for sure: amateur golfers are a unique breed of athlete. Most weekend or day-off-fromwork swingers go from their car to the green without any thought about their physical condition. Even though golf is a slow-pace, low-impact sport, it is a full-body sport. Golfing requires the coordination of many major and minor muscle groups during different phases of the swing. Because of the complicated nature of the golf swing—the backswing, downswing and follow through—injuries are common, especially for amateur golfers. According to the American Orthopaedic Society for Sports Medicine, the most common complaint among golfers is low-back injuries, primarily caused by the extreme spinal rotation and extension involved in 24

the swing. Shoulder and elbow injuries are the second-most common injuries. Experts agree: most golf-associated injuries are due to wrong form, a weak core and poor body mechanics. This means less efficiency, inconsistency and too many unwanted movements that keep the golfer constantly trying to change and/or fix his or her swing. Fortunately, golfers of all skill levels and ages can improve their game, increase their drive and stroke, decrease the risk of injury and restore injured muscles and joints. How? By doing Pilates and/or working with a physical therapist who is specially trained to work with golfers. Kelsey Mercer, certified STOTT Pilates method trainer and instructor and owner of ROOTS Mind Body Health & Fitness in Flagstaff, explains the connection between golf and Pilates. “For the most part, golf and Pilates share the same basic principles—flexibility, rotation, core strength, and a focus on the breath. Pilates teaches golfers to be mindful in their movements—integrating their pelvis, trunk and shoulders into safe, flowing and progressive movements. The emphasis on the breath helps the golfer maintain

and will appear in our sister publication, the Arizona Daily Sun. FSO Board President Stan Sutherland and Latshaw shared that the concerts includes classics and pops, with special events planned for Halloween and Valentine’s Day. “We do have a well-rounded season planned for 2017-18,” Latshaw said. “Pops will return to the schedule, with a show featuring the great Laurice Lanier—one of PBS’s “Three Mo’ Divas” singing Motown, Gospel, R&B and more.” He added, “And some of our regular masterworks concerts are more of an eclectic blend of repertoire. It’s all great music, and we’ll never sacrifice quality, but we’re programming lots of accessible works and there’s something in the season for everybody.” The FSO Board and staff look to connect to Latshaw’s strengths going forward and expect great things from what has long been one of Flagstaff’s premier arts organizations. “Charles is an especially collaborative artist, and he plans to share soloists and programming ideas between the Grand Junction Symphony and the FSO as well as work with other arts organizations in Flagstaff,” Sutherland explained. “This synergy and his ability to spend more time in Flagstaff will be a boost. He is an especially engaging person, and this will help in building relationships with donors, musicians, and the audience.” Latshaw said in a recent interview he is hoping to create an interaction between the Grand Junction Symphony and FSO, as both of them carry similarities. “The main one artistically is we’re geographically isolated. In both places we’ve got enough musicians in town to staff a great orchestra, but when we want to do projects

that are a little bit outside the norm or bring visiting artists … then we have to reach pretty far out. It can lead toward repetition.” He added, “I think that’s our biggest challenge: to find ways to continue to expand our worldview while we occupy a place that’s kind of set apart from the rest of the world. That’s not to say I want to bring in outside people to replace our locals, but it’s the idea of continuing to bring in new ideas.” Latshaw also recognizes the uniqueness of Flagstaff in its history, organizations and spirit. He hopes to bring in more partnering between FSO and other groups in order to foster connection. “In a town like Flagstaff where there are a lot of arts organizations, it’s possible for some people to be very involved in arts and never know about the symphony or never attend because they’re busy attending other things. The more we collaborate, the more we serve a better part of our community.” To learn more visit www.flagstaffsymphony.org. may17 namlm.com
