arizona luxury in adobe brick

Adobe is one of the earliest building materials, dating back thousands of years across many cultures. Nowhere in this country is its use better illustrated than in the Southwest. Perhaps it’s adobe’s deep rooted ties to our region’s Native American and Hispanic history that allow it to endure. Or maybe it’s the material’s ability to withstand the desert’s harsh conditions. Whatever the reason, adobe remains a classic component of Arizona architecture.

While modern construction materials have given the sun dried earthen element a run for its money, its popularity here continues to flourish, as seen in this sophisticated home in Whisper Rock, Scottsdale. Adobe construction is classic in the Southwest, and adds design character to a desert dwelling. This Arizona Luxury interior design showcases reclaimed wood floors and plaster walls complete the look.
