Contemporary Home Dominating an Arid Landscape: Palm Desert Residence

Palm Desert Residence was developed by Heliotrope Architecture in collaboration with Audrey Alberts Design (company in charge of the interior finishes) and is located in Palm Desert, California. We were impressed by the refinement and harmony of its interior design and decided to showcase this project on Freshome to see if you guys share our views. According to the architects,”the house found its inspiration in the classic west-coast ranch house style – a single story structure with low-pitched sloped roofs and an open, asymmetrical floor plan centered around the backyard pool and patio. The house is clad in a protective layer of stone cladding and zinc roofing against the harsh desert sun. Views out to the desert landscape, sunlight, shade, easy outdoor living, grandkids racing about; these are the qualities that most factored into the design.” A few more similar architecture projects and we will certainly change our perspective about living in arid environments.
