Overview:

Desert House
Mojave Desert, California

Inspired by indigenous desert dwellings, the Desert House is partially subterranean to insulate against the desert heat, while maintaining a discreet presence on the desert floor. The carved–out underground living areas are protected overhead by a hovering steel–structured roof. The space between the roof and desert floor provides generous daylight and an open quality, offering a welcome foil to the more enclosed portions of the house.
