Byrne Residence, one of the most featured works by Phoenix-based architect Will Bruder, has come on the market in Scottsdale. Originally completed in 1998, the geometric modern home has since undergone a complete four-year-long restoration and renovation with input from the architect himself.

The result is a stunning example of desert architecture that incorporates its natural surroundings to create a site-specific house of impressive proportions, inspiring views, and quality materials.

Measuring approximately 3,200 square feet, the four-bedroom-three-bath features sandblasted masonry walls, glazed expanses, and an offset steel roof that “floats above the space like a soft canopy,” according to the listing. Copper panels, polished concrete floors, particle-board ceilings, and other wood paneling dress the interiors, which are bathed in sunlight and flow from room to room.

With an updated kitchen, renovated bathrooms, and smart-technology integration, the desert abode stays relevant in the contemporary age. Unfurling across the five-acre landscape studded with saguaro cacti, the property at 8915 E. Jack Neville Drive is offered at $1.849 million.
