Santa Rita Guest House

Sonoita, Arizona

Part of an overall Maser Plan, Pollard Architects created to the southeast a guest house for the Abbey. The first phase was an art studio which is has been completed; the second phase was a senior wing, and the third was this simple guest residence. This structure has a radiant floor, rammed earth walls, and solar controls. The building takes on the color of the surrounding area, and is on the entry road to the Abbey and Church. It contains three separate bedrooms, baths, and a common space.
