Desert House

Along the same lines as his House Inside a Rock, Amey Kandalgaonkar organically integrates another concrete structure into the desert landscape. The dwelling is comprised of a cement tower adjacent to an existing rock formation, contrasting the jagged, natural formation with its sleek, manmade form. From the vertical volume stretches a curved arm. The extension wraps around the boulder to shield the formation from wind and erosion while connecting the home's entrance to the main living areas. On the rooftop, a poolside terrace offers an open-air space for sunsets and stargazing above the rugged terrain.
