Sabino Mountain Tucson, Arizona Home, 301

Completed: 2010

Contractor: McCreary Homes, Inc.


 2009 Fall issue of Luxe Interiors + Design
From the street, the residence first appears as a humble series of masses, but then the linear entry axis introduces visitors to the architecture beyond. The entry ax continues through the residence and frames the steel and wood stairs. Beyond the stairs can be seen the Catalina mountains that links to the two story column of the great room. The open volumes of space make the Catalina Mountains and Sonoran desert a constant backdrop to living inside an almost glass room. In contrast, the space of the day room and kitchen are connected by a low flat horizontal ceiling. The low plane is supported by a colonnade of exposed masonry columns. From the open planned kitchen can be seen the city views to the south and the Catalina Mountain to the north. The stairs lead to a second story loft that takes advantage of an outdoor deck, providing high unobstructed vistas.
