White Stone Flats
Located in downtown Phoenix, in a neighborhood that locals call the Triangle, these two story, two bedroom rental apartments are designed to be a place to reconnect and recharge. These micro apartment’s include a private two story atrium that spans across every space inside in each unit. The design and construction is of the highest architectural quality. Custom white concrete blocks with foam filled cores serve as the hard-shell exterior needed to combat the desert heat. From the interior, the same block provides a sleek cool exposed surface with a highly burnished surface treatment that delivers refracted light deeper into the space.
The complex is composed of two identical volumes that rotate around site obstacles. The proximity of the two volumes self-shades all the exterior walkways, a technique borrowed from the Barrio construction of historic Tucson neighborhoods.
