What a great opportunity for fans of contemporary architecture! This 3 bedroom, 2.5 bath home is listed for sale at a great price point: $225,000. It was designed by Architect Charles Cox and built in 1963 on the east side of Tucson.
This is the same Architect who designed the Catalina American Baptist Church (now known as Catalina Church of Midtown) built in 1960 at 1900 N. Country Club. The church uses a ‘hyperbolic paraboloid’ as it’s roof structure, which also doubles as it’s walls. This allows large windows to be placed on two sides of the structure, creating a striking appearance. The church went through a renovation recently completed by Architect Chris Evans.
This is first in a series of architecturally important homes for sale in the Tucson area. Next week we’ll be focusing on a home for sale designed by Arthur T. Brown, a well known Tucson Mid-Century Modern Architect. He was also known for using hyperbolic paraboloid roofing structures on homes and carport structures.
