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.

What is the height above the sink? - I would like to do. Similar layout in a bathroom expansion but it would mean putting the vanity under the stair space- I'm trying to figure out how to do it without feeling claustrophobic Thanks

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?

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.

Maybe a smaller version of this idea for the guest bathrooms. It don't think it would be so expensive. Sort of like what we did in Gex.
