Residence on the south slope of Camelback Mountain, Phoenix, AZ built 1985. Area 5,000Sq. Ft.
The topography is very steep.
We designed a building of two major levels, that integrate with the Slope.
The main material is common concrete block laid with every course 3/8″ offset from the course below to achieve a slight slope that softens the excessive heights of the walls necessitated by the steep terrain.
The other main material is stucco over Wood frame.
