This project aims to revitalize the neighborhood near the center of Tucson, and demonstrate that thoughtful design can create quality, affordable living spaces within the city’s urban fabric.

Each house is situated to have a welcoming public entry and extensive private gardens. The Double is an experiment in modern architecture where versatility and function are revealed through the straightforward circulation of an open floor plan and the use of simple, durable construction materials.

The result of resourcefulness combined with smart planning is a space that responds to its place, time, and circumstance.
