After some time, we unlocked the secret of the site and devised a strategy where the house splits in two volumes to form a “canyon” of saguaro. The rust patina skin, which lines the canyon, is an echo of the iron oxide found in the site’s fieldstone. The saguaro are left untouched as we shape the house to the site and not the other way around.
