The 007 house is designed by architect Rob Paulus and is set in the Arizona desert. He focuses in green choice as LEED projects, infill, renovations and adaptive reus. All rainwater is capture on the roof via the steel pipe gutter that spills into a 1000 gallon storage tank to be re-used for courtyard planting.
“This home went vertical and down below grade to maximize the use of the site. Two insulated masonry walls define the enclosure east and west with floor to ceiling glass at the north and south facing rooms. A large canopy cantilevers out to the south to shade the interior from the harsh desert sun while establishing an edge for the southern courtyard.”
“Designed as a loft, the interior emphasizes light and space over decor. Detail is relegated to functional components- stair, railing, cabinetry and the juncture of dissimilar materials. Clean geometry defines both vertical and horizontal surfaces to create a tranquil setting for life along a busy street”.
“Passive solar in plan and section, the house also captures all rainwater on the roof in a sculptural steel pipe gutter that will spill into a 1000 gallon storage tank to be re-used for courtyard planting”.
