Lanning Architecture - Practical design for modern southwest living
Lanning / Hiller Residence

Bob and Kate's own residence was built in 2000 in the Santa Rosa neighborhood in downtown Tucson. We pushed the residence to one side of a small urban lot to create a large courtyard between the house and an adjacent antique (ca. 1911) adobe guesthouse. The main entry is into the courtyard to create the feeling of an outdoor room. The interior of the residence is mainly a single "great room" with a gable ceiling, with bedrooms and bathrooms off of that. Contemporary elements are fused with a somewhat traditional form to create an eclectic modern barrio home.
