Casa Caldera is situated 15 miles from the US-Mexican border in the San Rafael Valley, Arizona.

“In geological terminology, a caldera is a collapsed volcano dome and this remote dwelling known as Casa Caldera was constructed using a material derived from crushed basaltic lava known as red scoria, which is then mixed with cement and compacted to form the walls. DUST refer to this technique as lavacrete and consider it a new aspect of the vernacular, allowing the walls of Casa Caldera to blend remarkably well with the surrounding geology.”
