MULTI-FAMILY RESIDENTIAL - GOLD AWARD Legacy Apartments at Dove Mountain Marana, Ariz.

Determined to create a rental community that breaks the mold of the typical bland, big-box apartment complex, developers John Graham, Scott Lundberg, and Brian Peschel looked outside the rental design profession for inspiration and fresh ideas. They found their man in custom-home architect Ron Robinette, who had designed dozens of homes in and around Tucson, Ariz., during his 27-year design career, but never a multi-family rental complex. Robinette answered the call with a design scheme that offers a resort-style setting and upscale amenities, while holding to a budget for market-rate apartments. Since the medium-density development could have only a limited amount of open space, the design team decided to focus the shared spaces in and around the single-story recreation center, which features a large pool, fire pit, spa, putting green, fitness center, business center, and lounge — all designed and detailed as eloquently as one of Robinette’s custom-home projects.

To minimize the scale of the taller apartment buildings and differentiate the 12 structures from one another, Robinette articulated the buildings with a two-tone color scheme, stone veneer accents, and regionally historic block masses that provide offsets for shade. “Whereas the typical apartment building is stacked, with nearly identical balconies and floor layouts, we made them asymmetrical using different heights and massing,” says Robinette. “If you’re downstairs, you may get a covered porch, but those upstairs may have a partially covered porch.” One of the biggest investments, he says, was cladding the balconies and stairwells in stucco — “The developers didn’t want the typical steel, open-rail stairs that you would see around Tucson.” The site plan situates the majority of the two-story rental buildings along the east and north perimeters to take advantage of the mountain and city views. This allows the developers to charge a premium for many of the perimeter units, as well as the poolside apartments. Inside the apartments, the design team went with an off-white scheme that, while only subtly different from other apartments in the area, “is the kind of thing that makes it look much more residential than other units,” says Robinette.
