Falcon Nest

Towering 124 feet off the ground in Prescott, Arizona, the Falcon Nest gives you the benefits of high-rise living in the Sierra Prieta mountains. The ten-story home offers 6,200 square feet of living space accessed by a hydraulic elevator. A glass-encased solarium — housing two bedrooms, two baths, kitchen, and great room — expands out from the foundation in four directions, offering views expanding out 120 miles to include glimpses of San Francisco Peaks, Humphrey's Peak, Bill Williams Mountain, and your friendly neighbor Thumb Butte. The home also comes with another bedroom, two more bathrooms, and bragging rights for owning North America's tallest single-family house.

  • Cement Factory Conversion

    Renovated from the ruins of a 19th century Catalan plant, the Cement Factory Conversion is a place of both work and leisure for Spanish architect Ricardo Bofill. Spread throughout the former silos, smoke stacks, underground tunnels, and machine rooms, the estate is made up of four parts — the studio, La Cathedral, the gardens, and the residence. Each space has been transformed to host a new function, while its massive form and towering concrete walls were left virtually untouched to keep the structure's industrial identity intact. Externally, the cold facade of the existing volumes is softened by lush plants, climbing vines, and rooftop gardens, turning the rigid fortress into a whimsical abode.

  • MK House

    With a design from a former understudy of Vincent Van Duysen, the MK House imbues an Antwerp townhouse with a charming yet austere interior. Warming touches like wooden herringbone flooring and exposed wooden beams mix with stark white walls and dashes of stone and marble — used most conspicuously on the kitchen cabinets — to create an inviting atmosphere. Large banks of windows allow plenty of natural light to pour in, while the owners' collection of artwork helps give the neutral palette a touch of added personality.
