This is the project Single Family Residence in Tucson, Arizona and estimated completion at 2010. This house design by DUST design build team consists of Jesus Robles, Dale Rush and Cade Hayes. Divided into four zones, the living spaces, the sky terrace, the sleeping spaces and the guestroom, the home is both visually connected and physically divided by a rammed earth wall. It serves as a fully functional music recording studio with specially constructed resiliently framed walls and special sound deadening mechanical ductwork a thoughtful site strategy situates the home on the site between two existing rock outcroppings.
The design incorporates passive solar design strategies as proper orientation reduces the solar heat gain dramatically. The linear design runs east to west, making the longest facades the north and south and the east and west facades the most narrow in width.
