1994 | Phoenix, AZ | Showcase Residence | 2,640 sq ft | $1 million

The Arizona Public Service demonstration residence is an early career exploration of sustainable technologies that were both cost effective and efficient. Jones Studio was honored to be selected in a statewide competition to design this environmental milestone. Predating LEED, this project helped write the book on what it meant to live sustainably in the desert. Innovative and intuitive, Jones Studio never shyed from challenging convention to create a beginning step in the green revolution.
