Thunderbird Heights Residence by Stuart Silk Architects

Thunderbird Heights Residence is a project designed by Stuart Silk Architects and is located in Rancho Mirage, California. Originally built in the 1960s, the challenge for this project was how to update a mid-century modern house without sacrificing its charm. Situated on a 1.3-acre site perched on a plateau above Coachella Valley, the rugged, inhospitable Santa Rosa Mountains rise immediately from the back yard; bighorn sheep can often be seen wandering on the rocks above. The 6,357-square-foot house sits roughly in the middle of the property; entry is off the driveway and through a private courtyard. Photography by David Papazian
