Modern Oasis: Riverfront Residence in Tucson, Arizona
Riverfront Residence was designed by Taylor Design + BUILD and is located in Tucson, Arizona, within a unique natural landscape. The architecture of the project had to be well adapted to the weather conditions imposed by the buiding’s environment. This is why sustainability was one of the main features the architects took in consideration when designing this home: “The emerging sustainability movement must not forget design aesthetics. We designed this modern home with both in mind. Built with an energy saving ICF concrete wall system and a roof shading strategy. Native desert grasses and small flowering ground cover plants help with summer cooling via micro-shading from the leaves of the plants. The main part of the house opens seamlessly out onto a huge shaded patio and pool.” The Riverfront Residence also features a green roof garden, keeping portions of the house isolated from the heat.
