The site for this single family home in Tucson Arizona is located amongst the ruins of my family's ancestral home, which was lost to an Arson in 2010. The new design for Casa de Bettina Davila-Lopez (In honor of my grandmother) is intended to honor the history of the site as well as serve as a modern family home for future generations. The design makes use of traditional masonry construction, glass and steel enclosure, as well as traditional ocotillo sun screening techniques. The design is very much inspired by the local site and the history of the property.
