Emerging from the Sonoran desert, the Hunter House Hotel Concept puts a luxury spin on your average bed and breakfast. The exclusive resort is intended for single occupancy with accommodations for up to four couples, as well as detached staff quarters. Its site was carved out of the existing rock as though the terraces and walkways were naturally a part of the terrain. Although modern in form, the sandy hue of its exterior facade further blends the retreat's clean lines into the surroundings. The highlight feature is the swimming pool. Accessible from the inside and outdoors, it runs from the rear of the house, through the main living area, and back out into the landscape.
