Pine Canyon Introduces New Supplemental Design Guidelines for Walnut Canyon

Developers Empowering Owners to Employ Innovative Architectural Elements

Flagstaff, Ariz. (July 31, 2016) – Pine Canyon, a private master-planned golf course and residential community in Flagstaff, Arizona, is introducing bold, new supplemental design guidelines at Walnut Canyon, a pristine, custom home enclave where homeowners will be encouraged to stretch boundaries and explore adventurous, mountain-architectural possibilities. The additional guidelines place a premium on the connection between indoor and outdoor living, the use of native materials and the implementation of expressive design.

Developed by John E. Sather, AIA, AICP, a senior partner at the Phoenix-based Swaback Partners, the supplemental guidelines are meant to inspire creativity among potential buyers, architects and builders who may be seeking to purchase, build or design a unique mountain retreat. Walnut Canyon nestled in a trio of holes on Pine Canyon’s Jay Morrish- designed championship golf course, features 47 estate-sized home sites that capture spectacular mountain and golf course views among the area’s ponderosa pines.

“Walnut Canyon is a newer neighborhood within Pine Canyon, and with it, we’d really like homeowners to embrace the opportunity to be trailblazers when it comes to design. We really want them to make their mark,” said Peter Burger, president at Symmetry Companies, which is developing and managing Pine Canyon. “As a luxury community, it’s important to allow homeowners architectural flexibility, and in this case, encourage innovative design, to ultimately create a truly unique look and feel at Pine Canyon.”

As a reflection of its elevated mountain setting, the additional guidelines place an emphasis on expansive, functional outdoor living spaces that offer residents opportunities to enjoy the temperate weather and beautiful views offered by the northern Arizona landscape. To complement Pine Canyon’s surroundings, the guidelines also underscore the value of using natural building and aesthetic materials such as stone, steel, glass and wood.

The introduction of the updated architectural guidelines comes amid a flurry of construction activity at Pine Canyon, which unveiled several new residential options earlier this summer. The community began construction in recent weeks on Club Cabins, a collection of luxury retreats that will accommodate members who may need additional space for visiting guests or who may be awaiting the completion of their own home. In addition, Pine Canyon began construction on White Pines Vista, a village of townhomes, and Coconino Ridge, a pocket of single-family cabins.
