New House in Arizona

Link is an infill house in the Historic Pierson Place neighborhood in Phoenix, Arizona. The house is named “Link” as it was the last vacant parcel in the neighborhood, or as we saw it, the missing link.

Link House in Arizona

The Ranch Mine, comprised of Cavin and Claire Costello, a husband and wife design team, was hired by Evan Boxwell of Boxwell Southwest to design a 2000 square foot, 3 bedroom, 2 bathroom spec house on this 8,500 square foot vacant lot.



The house design had to go through The City of Phoenix Historic Preservation Office, so the design focused on abstracting the common scale, form and massing of the original houses in the historic district into a modern interpretation. The house is designed as part of the urban fabric connecting it both to nature and its neighborhood, visually and physically.

Sliding glass walls, 24 feet wide and 10 feet tall, enable the homeowner to open up the entire living space of the house, extending the living area outdoors to either the private backyard with a built-in board-formed concrete fire pit, the social front porch, or both. The living and dining area of the house, clad with walnut plywood, can essentially transform into an open air pavilion, ideal for entertaining in Phoenix.


The house uses large overhangs to shade the glass doors from April through October, and those doors provide unbelievable cross ventilation to cool the house on the cool desert nights. LED lighting and advanced framing construction also help to keep this house incredibly energy efficient. The bedrooms, bathrooms, and storage areas of the house are located in the private, main volume of the house.
