ituated on a corner lot in Arcadia Lite, Arizona, this 1950s stucco-clad ranch house needed a transformation — and architect Darren Petrucci was tasked with the project.

His work for owners Colin and Jodi Jones began as a simple addition and quickly grew to include a new pitched roof, lots of glass and spacious additions that unfold onto exterior courtyards.

For the interiors, designer Lesley G. Elliott’s incorporated shades of blue and green that mirror the brush and sky visible from the home’s floor-to-ceiling windows. Neutral tones, meanwhile, defer to the desert landscape.

The goal, of course, was to create spaces that seamlessly blend together. In the master bath, for example, a marble wall along the tub extends past the glass to an exterior courtyard and outdoor shower. “It’s like an optical illusion,” says Colin.

In the end, the home’s new sightlines were exactly what the homeowners needed — especially with two young kids.

“It’s great having visuals on the children’s play area,” Colin says. “And in the evenings, my wife and I enjoy spending time with the boys in the living area. We love watching them grow up here.”
