Architecturally trained and with a tooth-and-nail approach to construction, master builder Benjamin Hall converted an empty lot into an elegant urban infill project in downtown Phoenix, Arizona. Offering six studio apartments, White Stone Studios is the epitome of micro-dwelling made easy. Located in downtown Phoenix, in a neighborhood that locals call the Triangle, White Stone Studios furnishes a modern, clean aesthetic amidst what is likely to become the city's new urban hub. These 450-square-foot rentals are flanked with additional 200 square feet of private interior and exterior greenspaces. The atriums and patios are carved out of the solid exterior shell to provide an abundance of natural light, while maintaining a private and protective mass. The walls are built of polished double-sided white concrete masonry units that double as both the interior and exterior finish and are foam-filled for maximum insulation value. The roof also makes use of foam insulation, rendering the building super insulated. The residential complex is optimally positioned for natural daylight while still mitigating direct solar exposure.
