Emerging from the terrain like an alien shrub, the Joshua Tree Desert House is organically ingrained into the rocky landscape. The sculpted exterior is formed by cast concrete slabs. Taking a decade to complete, its interior continues the same artistic approach with custom-made pieces and bronze accents. Massive boulders are incorporated into the design, propping up the fireplace and kitchen counters. Stone floors and cement walls complete the monolithic aesthetic while gaps in the facade soften the palette with natural light.
