New Legacy Building & Design

In opposition to white and gray trends, the clients on this complete gut and renovation project requested 'no gray', resulting in a home full of bold colors with unique dimensional tiles and cladding. The transformed 1970’s hillside modern home in Paradise Valley, Arizona dictated a mid-century modern aesthetic with architecture that helped to inform the design.

Favoring long horizontal shapes for the new windows mixed with tall verticals, while keeping the original rose quartzite fireplaces, we created an integrated design in harmony with the architecture. Natural rift cut walnut wood balanced the custom colored mosaic tiles, wallpapers, and cladding. The custom fabricated new range hood started as a ‘napkin’ sketch and was made from cold rolled steel, with a custom scratched texture. The unique angled design is intended to tie into the angled contrasting wood grain on adjacent cabinets, as well as the trapezoid shape of the back splash tiles.
