In our desert town plagued by sprawl and lacking in public transportation, The Six is a project comprised of six courtyard houses that demonstrate the possibilities for higher density and urban infill desert development.

 

While the Six takes cues from Tucson’s architectural past and neighboring residences, which manifest as central courtyards, low-rise masonry construction, and thoughtful solar orientation, the project is an emphatic expression of its place and time.
