Spotted: Atherton|Keener in DWELL's December Issue
Cy Keener and Jay Atherton are big, young names in the local architecture and design community -- and they're currently enjoying some time in the national spotlight.
The December issue, titled Young Americans, features 32 new faces in the design world. Atherton and Keener opened the door of their Meadowbrook house in downtown Phoenix for a tour and a discussion on their history and future in architecture.
Their house, a cool concrete block-like structure, stands out in their neighborhood, but keeps a low(ish) profile behind tall oleander bushes.

The interior is spare, modern and an absolute team effort -- they told DWELL the only things they purchased (pre-designed) were the appliances and plumbing fixtures.
The designers were finalists in the New Times' Big Brain Awards in 2010 and profiled by Robrt Pela in our Big Brain Issue.
Take a look at DWELL's interview with Atherton and Keener, and a full slideshow of their home.
