Sentinel House, Tucson Arizona Home, 1001

A stone's throw from the base of Tumamoc Hill, Sentinel House unifies a series of overlapping and diverging requirements into a home that speaks to Tucson’s vibrant traditions and the surrounding neighborhood. The two story home is situated with strategically favorable views, downtown proximity, and minimally disturbed desert landscape. The density of natural Sonoran vegetation on the site required a measured response. Lifting the private spaces allowed the main floor to sink into the earth, both insulating and limiting the profile of the house. This reduced interference on the site and allowed the architect to create strategic openings that avoided light pollution and emphasized uncluttered historic views of Tumamoc Hill and Sentinel Peak.
