Stone Canyon, Oro Vally, Arizona Home, 202
Completed: 2008 Contractor: multiple As one approaches the front entry and auto-court, they gradually become aware of the architecture. The residence seems to naturally terrace and emerge from the landscape, striking an equilibrium that converses well with the mountains and rock outcroppings that envelope it. The residence rests among the many beautiful rock outcroppings and native desert vegetation found at the foothills of the Tortolita Mountains in Northwest Oro Valley. The family room exposes itself to the outside, collectively forming a larger space that successfully merges what is exterior and what is interior. 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. Hidden from view are numerousness Solar Panels that supply energy year round.
