Martinek Residence by 180 Degrees Design + Build
by Ted Savage / September 1, 2011
Via @ArchDaily, a clean and functional rebuild on a relatively small 7,340 sf lot in Tempe, Arizona, resulted in a courtyard style home wrapping around the entire site. The design goal: "Increase livable square footage from 1,500 sf to 3,200 sf, add a swimming pool, private courtyard and covered parking area."


The result: "Four intimate courtyards which help create microclimates within the same lot while numerous glass doors pivot or slide open, allowing for some sections of the home to be completely operable and fosters a great indoor/outdoor feeling. A pool courtyard is screened by a cast-in-place concrete wall that also doubles as the pool's water feature. ... Other materials include maple cabinetry, plate steel walls, exposed integral color concrete floors and aluminum and glass doors and windows." More at 180 Degrees Design + Build.
