House For a Single Guy on a Small Site – 007 House by Rob Paulus Architects

The 007 House is designed by Rob Paulus Architects for a single guy in his mid 30’s. It’s a modern bachelor pad set on the edge of an older neighborhood near the University of Arizona. The house is designed for an indoor, outdoor living on a small site and within a tight budget. It went vertical and down below grade to maximize the use of the site. Two insulated masonry walls define the enclosure east and west with floor to ceiling glass at the north and south facing rooms. A large canopy cantilevers out to the south to shade the interior from the harsh desert sun while establishing an edge for the southern courtyard. Inside the house is designed as a loft. Among green features of the design are the passive solar water heating and the rainwater collecting.
