SPOTLIGHT ON ARCHITECTURE: Erik Peterson and Stuart Jon Traynor, PHX Architecture What is the style of your home? Contemporary. Where did your home design inspiration come from? We wanted something unique that hasn’t been done in Arizona. We got a lot of inspiration from the Bird Streets in Los Angeles. How was the process of building your home? Scott: My career is residential real estate (with The Grigg’s Group) so I am very familiar with the process. I also have the privilege of being the listing agent for Cullum Homes’ communities so it was fun to be on the other side and get to see the process from the customer side. It’s very rewarding to see your dreams come to reality. What is your favorite part of your home? Our upstairs patio that runs the entire length of our home. It can host up to 100 people comfortably and has some of the best views in town. This is where we spend a lot of our time. What item in your home do you love the most? Art pieces that we have collected over the years at Art Basel in South Beach, Miami. We also spend a lot of time in our media room watching sports or movies. Describe your home in three words. Sleek, sexy and well-built! What makes your home unique? The architecture is very unique for Arizona. It has a Hollywood Hills type of feel. We also were able to get a five-car garage for a hillside home, which is very difficult to accomplish. Our community is also unique in that it is only comprised of seven homes that all are required to maintain a contemporary design. Favorite event hosted at your home: We hosted our first Thanksgiving this past year. We were able to set up a table on the patio that dined 35 people, and it showed us how well our home entertains. We even heated the pool for all the kids and dogs to swim after we ate.
