Lanning Architecture - Practical design for modern southwest living
O'Kelly Residence

The clever location of this residence was the brainchild of the owner. She owned an historic apartment building in the Armory Park Historic District in downtown Tucson, and had the idea that the property was just large enough to create a new freestanding residence for her family. So the design challenge was to create a livable residence in a twenty-three foot wide space. That was accomplished by carefully layering the "living" spaces on the first floor and the "sleeping" spaces above, and holding on to the notion of creating a modern, open feeling within a traditional structure.
