Contractor: Tom Mancuso
This residence was designed with a modest street presence and yet still creates a panoramic view of the desert from the inside. The sloped planes of the roof draw the eye out to the vista beyond. The open planning connects the great room, dining, and kitchen into on large comfortable space. Multi-sliding glass walls extend the living spaces out to the patio; bring the activity flowing naturally outside. This fusion enables the inhabitant to wholly appreciate Southern Arizona’s climate, which affords its residents the opportunity to entertain outside the majority of the year. This outdoor sala is a second living room that has an intimate relationship with the environment that it inhabits.
