The only Arts & Architecture Case Study program project built in Arizona, this superb apartment home stands as the Case Study program’s most extensively realized multiple housing designs.

Recognized as one of Al Beadle’s best, “Triad Apartments”  broke the mold of the conventional apartment, providing (3) one-bedroom/den or two-bedroom units of 840 +/- sq. ft.

Each apartment contains a living room, kitchen, bath and a study as well as a private outdoor patio. Communal facilities include carport, storage and laundry; a central court that allows for light, space and beauty. Post and beam construction coupled with signature modernist materials as recognized in other Beadle designs. In recent years, the dwellings were lovingly restored to near original condition. Simply put, this is a signature iconic piece of local Modernism.
