La Casita

The Sonora Desert in Tucson, Arizona sets the stage for this festive retreat replicating the Mexican interiors so enjoyed by this couple seeking a colorful getaway. Bold colors and an extensive art collection punctuate the space, while tongue and groove wood boards fill between the existing beams for further texture.

Concrete elements surround the fireplace and enhance the hearth to add strength and form to the main room. Opening the kitchen with this pass-through bar, adding a three-quarter bath and enclosing the interior patio to create a dining atrium exponentially expands the living spaces and use of this cozy casita.
