At Home in the Desert
To enjoy the site's panoramic views of the surrounding landscape, the Skow family desire to have a front porch where they could sit in comfort and gaze out. Besides cooling the interior spaces, the dramatically overhanging roof goes a long way toward creating an outdoor living area shielded from the full force of the brutal sun.
