A Scottsdale project by Radziner is featured in the book.

Los Angeles-based architectural firm Marmol Radziner first grabbed the design world’s attention in the late 1990s with its sensitive renovation of Richard Neutra’s iconic 1946 Kaufmann house in Palm Springs. Since then, Leo Marmol and Ron Radziner have become known for their earthy, indoor-outdoor approach to modernism and a cadre of celeb clients. Their new book, Site: Marmol Radziner in the Landscape ($65, Princeton Architectural Press), surveys 19 of the architects’ homes in desert, canyon, urban and woodland settings, exploring how lines between indoors and out have been blurred. One chapter chronicles a recent 5,000-square-foot Scottsdale home, where stone, glass and concrete help blend the home into the desert and focus views on surrounding mountains.
