The Martinek Residence With Swimming Pool and Private Courtyard

After living in Tempe, Arizona for more than 15 years, the Martinek family felt they needed a change. However, they didn’t want to leave that area that they loved so much so instead they’ve decided to re-build on the same lot .This happened in 2010. Originally they had a 1,500 sf livable area and they later decided they wanted to increase that area to 3,200 sf.

They wanted to make several changes, both to the house and the surrounding area. They went to 180 Degrees Design + Build for help and together they’ve managed to create a new and improved home that the Martineks will be able to enjoy for many years to come. Among the major changes that have been made we can mention the addition of a swimming pool, a private courtyard and a covered parking area.

The house looks simple but it’s warm and cozy, the perfect home. There’s plenty or livable area now, the rooms are bigger and more welcoming and the additional structures are always a plus. Also, the surrounding area is actually a large courtyard, a huge garden where the owners can enjoy the nature. Among the materials used in the construction we can mention the maple cabinetry, plate steel walls, exposed integral color concrete floors and Arcadia storefront aluminum and glass doors and windows.{found on archdaily}
