Parting Shot: Bali in the Desert

The blending of Balinese pod-style architecture with contemporary design aesthetics, then placing it in a desert landscape with towering saguaros and views of Pinnacle Peak, was a challenge for the folks at Tate Studio Architects in Cave Creek, Arizona.
The patio area wraps around the negative edge black water pool and spa that creates a feeling of tranquility. Resting inches above the water’s surface is a bronze sculpture titled “Devorah” by Venice Beach artist Guy Dill. At night, live flames seemingly emerge from the blackness of the pool to highlight the sculpture.
