The Brokery is home to a local independent real estate company focusing on the Arcadia and Biltmore areas of Phoenix. The modern and memorable building is the culmination of a four-year process which began when real estate executive Tucker Blalock purchased the vacant lot. Studio Ma drew design inspiration for The Brokery from local landmarks including Camelback Mountain as well as the colors and textures of the desert.
The use of sustainable materials was important, and all building elements were chosen for durability, beauty and performance. The exterior walls are designed as a rainscreen utilizing sustainable Kebony Clear cladding, which will weather and reveal a beautiful silver-gray patina. Kebony was chosen because the material is highly durable and can withstand extreme temperature changes.
