Seed Architecture

The Five Degree Residence


Named 5 Degree because the massive main concrete support wall is tilted 5%. This tilting gives the house incredible angles and geometry that you cannot get in a conventional house. As much a work of art as it is a dwelling. Truly one of the most iconic homes in Phoenix. Built of glass, steel and concrete. Cost over $1.2 million to build. Full of fun touches like the changeable color led lights in the concrete floor that lights up both the floor inside the house and patio ceiling below (looks like stars at night) , Led lighting on both sides of the stairs and large outside led lighting fixture. The house feels expansive with the incredible high ceilings, floor to ceiling glass walls and the large volumes of space. 3200 sq ft. 3br 2.5 ba air-conditioned work room. All of the bedrooms have their own floor to ceiling glass doors to outside patios. There is heated pool that can be turned into a never-ending lap pool. Even the laundry room is amazing in this house. The many skylights provide a permanent link to the outside as well as bringing in all natural light throughout the day. Enjoy the views all the way to downtown and south mountain. Mountain preserve and hiking trails directly across the street. No expense was spared building this house, only the highest quality materials were used. Located in a quiet North Phoenix neighborhood .Incredible views, city lights in one direction, mountain views the other direction. Landscaped for the desert with most plants needed very little if any watering. A masterwork of architecture that could never be built for this sales price. Here is a rare opportunity to own one of the valleys most interesting modern homes.
