Tucson-based studio HK Associates Inc has sent us photos of the Finger Rock House project.
Located in the foothills of the Santa Catalina mountain range, the Finger Rock residence is named for its view of one of Tucson’s most prominent natural landmarks.
Finger Rock House by HK Associates Inc:
“The concept and layout of the house are a direct response to its desert setting and panoramic views.
The Living Room, Kitchen and Dining Room occupy the second floor and are connected to terraces that offer vistas of the north, south and east horizons, while a narrow horizontal window on the west façade captures evening sunsets. The Master and Guest Bedrooms, as well as a Gym and Office are located at ground level, offering intimate views and a direct connection to the desert floor.
The structure of the house reinforces this conceptual order, with the airy glass and steel frame of the second story supported by a masonry base that rises directly from the ground. The roof plane of the second story cantilevers and folds down strategically to reinforce the panoramic views of the mountains and city while providing shelter from the sun.
