Architecture Design of Summitridge Drive House

Description About The Project

Summitridge Drive House designed by Whipple Russell is incredible stunning luxurious house. Located on a property is a flat hourglass shape on top of a ridge with steep slopes on two sides, so the shape guided the positioning of the house. It has a beautiful view to the west on the left, and looking down to the South, of canyons and the city.

Also, in order to fit on the ridge the whole plan had to be skinny. Which means from inside the views are right there, to get big windows and great views from both sides. To get a viable house on that unusually shaped site, with height restrictions and setbacks, was the challenge. The design is not rectangular, it’s not a traditional L-shape, but it works.

Besides, beyond the glass pivoting front door, this house provides resort style living. Also, with multiple entertainment areas, outdoor terraces, and the highest quality interiors and detailing by Troy. Also, the theme for the entire house was a residential boutique hotel that was geared for entertainment, for parties, for a nice stay.

Once inside, all furniture has been custom designed and built. It has three levels, the top being a spacious, romantic roof terrace perfect for an intimate dinner and a slow dance. From the entry area there is an open view across the dining room, kitchen, and family room to the city below. The dining room wall treatment is a custom-dyed sycamore wood veneer from Italy given a high-gloss lacquer finish with polyurethane that is used throughout the Summitridge Drive house. Sliding glass walls open the kitchen, family, and dining areas to the patio with lots of outdoor seating opposite the two-sided fireplace with video screen. There is a dining space and outdoor kitchen by the zero-edge infinity pool.

Text by the Architects: The Summitridge Drive is a creative collaboration between architect Marc Whipple and Troy Adams of Troy Adams Design, who served as project manager and interior designer. Both enjoyed the process immensely, and this distinctive house is certainly evidence of a successful partnership.
