Text description provided by the architects. This is an urban desert, multi-family residential environment designed by Circle West Architects. The Duke represents a forward thinking approach to urban life. Located near Downtown Scottsdale, Arizona, the site is set between a series of randomly built structures. Industrial properties lie to the east and south while residential is located to the west and north. The modern, pure building cuts a clean sharp edge through the randomly built environment of the surrounding area.

Compressing various functions into individual, yet related spaces and allowing the character of each space to define the others, the building was formed. Compact and efficient, emphasis was placed on sustainable design through successfully participating in Scottsdale’s Residential Green Building Program. The Duke urban condos interior design and amenities include Stainless Steel-finish GE appliances, Stainless Steel kitchen Counters, white glazed Ceramic tile, Quartz Composite flooring in the kitchen and baths, Laminate Cabinets, and commercial-grade carpeting.

The overriding concept is the relationship between community and individuality. The Duke’s intent is to express individuality as a singular building with eight individual homeowners, while promoting community through architectural transparency at the second floor.
