At the foothills of the Franklin Mountains, 800 feet above El Paso, Texas, a young couple with an acre of unspoiled land began to envision their future residence. With one-of-a-kind views and protected park land on two sides, the spot was bursting with potential to create a dynamic home worthy of its surroundings.
Architects Darci Hazelbaker and Dale Rush of Tucson-based Hazelbaker Rush had a design vision that resonated with the couple. The undulating terrain and soaring elevation of the plot gave the team an opportunity to take advantage of several distinct outlooks when siting the home. With the distant glimmer of city lights on display to the south and alluring sunset views across the horizon to the west, the lot offered no shortage of showcase points.
