(Tucson, AZ) – Long Realty’s Robin Sue Kaiserman recently announced that the Ventana Canyon House was selected by the National Building Museum to be in its House and Home Exhibition in Washington, D.C.
The exhibition opened April 28th and is organized thematically juxtaposing objects, images, and texts with interactive displays and films. “The Ventana Canyon House is one of just a few homes selected to be featured in a large-scale Welcome Home film produced by Local Projects, which is in its own gallery in the exhibition,” said Sarah Leavitt, curator at the National Building Museum.
“We liked several features of the home, including its regional location in the Southwest and the way he (architect Rick Joy) used materials and structure to fit in with the local environment and the particular setting of the house. We loved the way the house interacted with the landscape and the opportunity to film a house at this scale was really appealing,” Leavitt continued.
Kaiserman, the real estate agent representing the Ventana Canyon House said, “This is an exciting opportunity to showcase what our community has to offer, a prestigious Tucson home by a renown local architect, chosen to be featured in this amazing national exhibition.”
“This is quite an honor for Tucson, for this prestigious organization to recognize the quality and beauty of homes in our community, and for Robin Sue Kaiserman and Long Realty to represent this home exemplifies our leadership in the luxury real estate market,” said Rosey Koberlein, CEO of Long Companies.
The architect for the Ventana Canyon House is Rick Joy of Rick Joy Architects, an award-winning architect from Tucson. The $5,200,000 contemporary home boasts 6,480 square feet of living space and is located at 6620 N. Eagle Ridge, Tucson, AZ, 85750.
