The architecture embodies a site-sensitive vocabulary of deep-layered shades, shadows, colors, textures and transparency. Overhanging bridges and cantilevering landscaped terraces shade public pedestrian courtyards, creating shelter not just as covered space but as a serene sanctuary from the southwest desert. The central promenade completes the north end of the City of Scottsdale's master-planned Marshall Way pedestrian connection in an active landscaped civic space lined with shopping, palm trees, fountains and water fall that provides evaporative cooling and mitigation of urban noise. The transparent modular facade is an interchangeable system of high-performance glazing, floating sandstone panels and textural sunshades, strategically located based on building orientation, site exposure and views to integrate light and privacy in response to the desert environment.
