When it's hot, this Phoenix family moves their cooking outdoors

The heat of cooking can tax an air conditioner --and the cook--when the heat of a Phoenix summer won't retreat. While remodeling their back yard, Mary and David Ogilvy decided there ought to be a way to bring kitchen comforts outdoors for use during hot spells.

With that in mind, architect James Scalise designed this cooking and dining pavilion next to the Ogilvys' pool as part of the remodel.

A pyramid-shaped roof sits on four concrete-block corner posts, providing a generous covered area for a six-chair dining set. A paddle-bladed fan hanging from the peak of the open-span roof keeps air circulating.

A heavy-duty fan vents the gas-fired grill to keep excess heat (and smoke) outside the enclosure. For further cooling, the brick paving can be hosed down.
