Tucson Residence Kitchen

Our client initially asked us to assist with selecting materials and designing a guest bath for their new Tucson home. Our scope of work progressively expanded into interior architecture and detailing, including the kitchen, baths, fireplaces, stair, custom millwork, doors, guardrails, and lighting for the residence – essentially everything except the furniture. The home is loosely defined by a series of thick, parallel walls supporting planar roof elements floating above the desert floor. Our approach was to not only reinforce the general intentions of the architecture but to more clearly articulate its meaning. We began by adopting a limited palette of desert neutrals, providing continuity to the uniquely differentiated spaces. Much of the detailing shares a common vocabulary, while numerous objects (such as the elements of the master bath – each operating on their own terms) coalesce comfortably in the rich compositional language.

Inspiring bathroom design! Can you tell me about the cabinet/shelf - is that custom or can it be ordered? And the counter - what is it?

Also would like to know about the countertop and the shelf under the sink and how that was made or designed?

What Houzz contributors are saying:

17. Add an orchid. You can pick up these beautiful exotic blossoms at the grocery store for about nine bucks, and they'll last for months.

Face up to a flattering glow Never was there a more important area to light sensitively than a vanity unit. This easy solution of up- and downlighters behind a mirror creates enough light for shaving or applying make-up without any harsh beams spoiling the day.
