The Downing Residence by Ibarra Rosano Design Architects is a carefully nested desert dwelling on a hillside west of Tucson organized between existing saguaros.  The 3500 square foot design splits the floor plan into three smaller pavilion-like footprints in order to rest more gently between areas of dense vegetation.

From a distance, the Downing Residence is barely discernable from its east-facing mountainside backdrop.  The structure blends with the surrounding rock outcroppings as each of its three volumes sit reverently within a grove of saguaro that dot the hillside.

The site for this single family residence is a steep north-facing slope in the foothills of the Tucson Mountains, located west of the city of Tucson in Arizona, with commanding views of city lights and the surrounding mountains.

Garcia-Residence-01The architects, Ibarra Rosano, wanted to design a structure that would appear to grow out of the rocky desert hillside without dominating the landscape. To be able to do that, they  set the axis of the house parallel with the site contours and created three narrow bays to terrace up the hill, keeping the excavation and fill to a minimum.

winter_residence_cover.jpg The transformation of the Winter Residence by Ibarra Rosano began as a simple request for a bathroom remodel. The owner Jerry Winter and his soon-to-be wife, Desi Rosenfield, were interested in creating bathrooms that matched the minimal and contemplative feel of the modern spas and boutique hotels they had visited in their travels. 

However, the spatial quality for which they were looking was in stark contrast to the haphazard flow and disparate finishes of their existing residence.
