Situated at the first uplift of the Catalina Foothills in Tucson just off River Road, this House with a View reaches up and out to capture impressive mountain and desert wash views. Floor to ceiling glass is positioned across the entire north façade to create a dramatic perspective of the Santa Catalina Mountain range visible from bedroom and living areas alike. The decidedly modern house straddles the hillside to define luxury living in the desert yet is only 20 minutes away from the University of Arizona and Downtown Tucson.
The main residence is zoned into a central living area with private rooms and functions relegated to the ends. Views are unrestricted to the north while other specific framed views to the south, east and west create a balance of large screen and postcard views. The guest house to the north completes the layout and looks back to the city lights and Rincon Mountains to the East as its primary view.
This House with a View is a clear study in maximizing a site with modern sensibility and function all the while maintaining as much natural area and environment as possible.
