Culdesac Tempe: Amenity Building Architecture

Tempe, AZ

Providing a Social Center and Icon

This amenity building activates the eastern edge of the main plaza. It’s designed to facilitate small events such as birthday and holiday parties, special community programming, and classes such as meditation or yoga. The building has a deep “porch” space that engages the main plaza while also providing a semi-private space. The building has a modern, desert character that differentiates it from the rest of the residential buildings within the Culdesac community.
