A Desert House for Sale

I came across this interesting real estate listing and thought I’d share it with you. I have a particular affinity for Arizona having been there several times and this property in the desert is quite unique.

Designed by Rick Joy, The Desert Nomad House is very much at one with its desert surroundings. Joy’s architectural training can be traced through William Bruder and Paolo Solari who apprenticed under Frank Lloyd Wright at Taliesin West in Arizona.

The house is comprised of three steel cubes and are oriented in such a way that one can look out at the Sonoran desert yet also invites a view into the space from the outside.

The interior design of the home very much reflects the rectilinear elements of the exterior and the clean lines make the desert surroundings the focus. I love all the light in the home.

Not sure this would be for me as I am not too keen on vast expanses of windows at night time – you know ’cause I’m scared of the dark (sort of). But it is truly an architectural masterpiece.

What do you think?

  1. That home is spectacular! All the wood, the glass, the stunning views what’s not to love. Sunrises and sunsets would be amazing. Takes being in the desert to a whole new level.

  2. Do you have to go outside to get from each cube? That’s weird….

  3. Not fare, I want one of those ;(

  4. Yikes! The outside shot reminds me of school portables!
    Stark yet gorgeous country.
    I wonder who gets to clean all those windows!!
