Barrio Historico House by HK Associates INC
Modern design with a twist of traditional courtyard architecture was illustrated within the ‘Barrio Historico House’ by HK Associates Inc. This structure stays in tune with the neighborhood’s guidelines with its facade proportions and door/window openings. It’s courtyard focuses on the sky as the swimming pool embraces a year round connection between the homes interior and exterior spaces. The intimacy of the courtyard and it’s design is captured from the interplay of a framed view and reflections repeated throughout the house. An added pleasure of the majestic view of the Sonora desert sky and a long rooftop periscope over the kitchen brings in the sight of scenic mountains making this abode a lovely treasure within the Tucson, Arizona landscape.
