The Desert House-Kendrick Bangs Kellogg-01-1 Kindesign

The Desert House is an organic modern estate that has been designed by Kendrick Bangs Kellogg, situated in Joshua Tree, California. Comprised of 4,643 square feet of living space, work begun on the three bedroom, three-and-a-half bath home started in 1988 and was completed in 1993. The sprawling residence is nestled on 10 acres of desert landscape, sheltered by large boulders. The interiors were meticulously designed by John Vugrin. The end result is a dwelling in concrete, steel, glass, and copper, flawlessly blending in with its rocky landscape.

This spectacular home is currently listed for sale at $3 million, from here.

The most important architectural house you may have never seen. It is physically of the desert, a part of its surroundings. The strength of the hard and rugged protective shell exterior is drawn from the desert. The interior is a warm intimate space of flowing organic shapes wrapping gently around its inhabitants. Light enters through continuous openings that separate the towering concrete panels. The textures provide the touch and feel of the desert as materials were meticulously selected from the desert. The property highlights the masculine and feminine forms that are the hallmark of organic architecture.
