Sunset
Patio with outdoor kitchen

Norm Plate


A hundred years ago in Tucson's Presidio neighborhood, it was common to smell mesquite smoke wafting over a courtyard wall on winter evenings. This outdoor living nook was designed as a modern version of that classic barrio garden, complete with a mesquite-burning fireplace. Exposed adobe seat walls (capped with concrete for durability) and a herringbone-patterned saguaro-rib patio ceiling are a nod to the neighborhood's heritage.
