Desert Hot Springs, CA 92240
The Desert House, 2005. Art, architecture and environmental awareness have been forged together in Marmol-Radziner's custom prototype for their industrially fabricated residential architecture. Recycled steel framing, highly energy-efficient glass, and solar-assisted power add an all-important, eco-friendly element to this milestone achievement. From the two-parcel, nearly 7.5 acre site on which the main house, guest house, studio and nearly 2,400 square feet of outdoor decks reside, broad panoramic vistas across the pool capture the all encompassing desert floor sweeping out to towering Mount San Jacinto and San Gorgonio. While imitation may be the sincerest form of flattery, future versions of this design may, in fact, be the sincerest form of social responsibility.
