I'm a photographer, artist and designer. Working with my brother Walter and my sister Maria we built theses loft units on Highland and live in the adjacent units. We have lived in Tucson since the early 1970's and always wanted to build our own homes after reading all of the alternative house books our parents would bring home when we were little kids. The 610 Highland Loft was completed in the 2009 and we decided to utilize the fourth loft unit as a short term rental. We wanted to create a space where people could experience a Modern Loft Lifestyle instead of staying of staying in a Hotel. The sun is such an important part of desert living and our initial designs revolved around how sunlight moves through the building at different times of the day. It has taken us a long time to make this space available to you, so we invite you to become a guest at the Willett Lofts, you just never know what we will be working on next. We do but it’s a big secret at this point.
The photo of us together is at Ikea in Tempe on the day we picked up the Kitchens for both loft spaces in 2008.
