Unique Big Top House designed by The Ranch Mine partners with creative homeowners to build forward-thinking property on an unconventional lot. This home located in Phoenix, United States and offers an impressive and prominent appearance with spectacular views to the mountain. Indeed, it is an unique design let the family life can often feel like a circus under one roof.

The layout of the social parts of this unique Big Top house was designed to provide a variety of ways to view the mountain. The semi-public front porch projects out from the front of the house to grab views of the “camel head” part of the mountain. The hemlock clad ceiling of the great room tilts up to take in views of the rest of the mountain from the kitchen and dining room. The bathroom continues the indoor-outdoor theme of the main living areas of the house. At end of the house, furthest away from the hustle and bustle under the Big Top. The primary suite features a private outdoor patio and a luxurious ensuite bathroom.

While the view was important from the start, creating spaces to congregate with friends and family was also a top priority, and fire became a linking feature. Surely, another key element of life is cooking, both for the family and for entertaining.

The Big Top House Gallery:

Text by the Architects: After a decade of trying to adapt their lives to the confines of a house that couldn’t meet their needs, a young family purchased a vacant lot at the base of Camelback Mountain in Phoenix, Arizona. The lot had a mountain view but came with a concave property line that narrowed the allowable building depth in the middle of the long lot to just 20 feet. This challenge prompted the homeowners to look for an architecture firm with the ambition to be unique and will engage the family in the creative process, ultimately leading them to The Ranch Mine, an architecture firm they had met 5 years earlier at a social entrepreneur incubator.
