“What Happened To My View?”
You are one of the first lot owners in a new custom home development that has really dramatic views in all directions – that’s why you bought the property. Everything looks amazing – now! But what will happen when homes are built on adjacent properties in the near future?
A critical concern for the homeowner and a challenging one for the architect is to “anticipate the unexpected” with respect to view corridors. Worst case scenario: a neighbor builds the largest house possible on the land. So, how do we anticipate the unexpected? It’s not magic, but it takes a good deal of experience with the conjunction of land and architecture. The Tucson architects of Soloway Designs use proprietary visualization techniques to demonstrate to our client just how those amazing views could be negatively altered and how best to design in anticipation. Well, maybe there is some magic involved.
