Text description provided by the architects. 180 Degrees Design + Build were approached by the Martinek family that after having lived in Tempe for the better part of 15 years, decided to re-build on their same lot, seeking to increase their livable square footage from 1,500 sf to 3,200 sf, add a swimming pool, private courtyard and covered parking area. On a lot of only 7,340 sf, their needs resulted in a courtyard style home that wraps the entire lot. Current zoning laws were in conflict with the design of the home, and two use permits and seven variances were granted.

The home is simple in its architectural character, employing exposed CMU and an abundance of glazing at the internal courtyards. Other materials include maple cabinetry, plate steel walls, exposed integral color concrete floors and Arcadia storefront aluminum and glass doors and windows.
