Joshua Tree Duo

A pair of homes located in the high Mojave desert near to Joshua Tree National Park. The site has beautiful views to the South, East and North. Privacy for each house is achieved by carefully considered orientation and strategic screen walls. The roofs have large overhangs to provide much need shade in the desert heat. The homes sit low on the site so as to blend into the surroundings.


3 Concepts combine to create the design:

Views out

Protection and shade


In the desert, understanding the sun is particularly important.
