2016 | Tempe, AZ | Commercial Office | 6,700 sq ft

Finally, after all these years of rent we own our home!

After all these years and still wearing jeans.

We chose a small undeveloped site in a residential area near the Arizona State University campus, with light rail stops, bike lanes and at the center of a perpetually youthful population.

It is a building in a garden with parking in a tree bosk.

Our home harvests rain water into a 2,500 gallon underground storage tank. The building daylights itself.  We will enjoy natural ventilation, an interior tree, and the play of shadows and light on and through a crazy masonry wall.

We will party on the roof!

But most of all, we make our new neighborhood… better!
