Design Icon – Project

Kevin Howard is a Modern Architect who works in the lushest parts of the Catalina Foothills and the heart of the Sonoran desert, in Tuscon. As a modernist who understands the unique landscape, he applies modernist principles as he surgically implants his work into desert. Crafting original designs and solutions to his client’s needs and desires. Jim and Fran Allen are lifelong art collectors, who moved to the desert, to enjoy our unique lifestyle. Their challenge was to create a vessel for their valuable collection. A minimalist space that would allow them to live in the art, a gallery of color and pattern that needed the simplest of structures. The charge to the architect, “So minimalist it drives you crazy?”
