< Public - Muratura 7

Location - Phoenix, Arizona

7 volumetric masonry tower lofts step back from the street in order to simultaneously frame unobstructed views of the valley floor, its’ distant mountain ranges including most proximately Camelback Mountain while at the same time opening onto private back yards with front door access and “eyes on the street”. Each tower loft set within this garden retreat is a walled citadel of solid natural masonry specifically crafted to celebrate the ever-changing light, color and shadow of our native Sonoran Desert. And while each facet of the towers are carefully calibrated to maximize the site and views each is also responsive to north and south light, to cross-ventilation, as well as acoustic and visual privacy, all of which create a sense of home, of arrival and of occasion.
