Oracle Studios Oro Valley Arizona
Completed 2010 Deign + Built By: Kevin B Howard Architects Oracle Studios is a shared space that inspire both collaboration and create synergy for the construction industry. The building itself is a visual expression of responsible desert architecture. The building's concept and form is designed to work with the Sonoran deserts greatest resource, its abundance of natural sun light. Through site orientation, the use of passive day lighting that floods the interior spaces and the use of over 100 photo-voltaic solar modules, the building meets all its own electricity demand. Oracle Studios was a Design-Build project by its future users. The process of building one's own work space was key to achieving the architectural detailing sought. The building's modest form hides the complexity of the interior's exposed steel framing. Oracle Studios is a complete expression of the design lessons of successful desert architecture.
