The axis of the house was set parallel to the contours of the surrounding area, creating three narrow coves to build up the hill and keeping the excavation to a minimum. The terraced platforms contain the three living areas of the house. The middle bay invites the visitor into the living area with dining room and kitchen on the lowest level which leads to the bedrooms on the upper level.

Modern solid house Garcia – view from afar

The superb view of the city has caused the architects to break the axis of the house and turn the windows to a fantastic view of the lights of the city of Tucson and the Catalina Mountains in the northeast. The sun from the south was left in the living rooms by separating the bedrooms, creating a small courtyard overlooking the ridge. The choice of materials – sandblasted stone, steel, birch wood and concrete – is simple, robust and withstands the desert climate. The architects believe that an exceptional space with good design and materials can be created.
