Nestled Between Cactuses: The Desert Nomad House, Arizona

villa Freshome 082 Nestled Between Cactuses: The Desert Nomad House, Arizona
The Desert Nomad House is an intriguing architecture project designed by Rick Joy and constructed in Tucson, Arizona. With a location tucked away in the desert, the inhabitants of this unusual crib are miles away from the urban racket, in an environment that ensures tranquility and serenity. The compound features three separate structures made of steel and glass: one hosts a bedroom and a small bathroom, the second accommodates a working area with an office and the third one is a living and dining unit. The interiors are highly modern and the generous floor to ceiling windows ensure unobstructed views of the desert. In our opinion, the best aspect about this place is that when you feel the need for outdoor relaxation, you have the whole desert at your feet. This 3 in 1 crib is currently up for sale here for $975,000.  How would you feel about having a permanent living space in a remote desert area? Would it be an upgrade to life in a big city?

    The transparent bathroom is fantastic! I was wondering why it’s got a glass shield anyway; then I realized oh my god, what about Coyotes?

    Wow…what a concept. It reminds me of the display cases in the zoo where people walk by and view the animals in a simulated natural habitat. Will wild animals walk by these display cases watching the humans in their simulated natural habitat?

    This would be awful for living. The desert is very hot in the summer and very cold at night in the winter. Having to step outside to go to the bathroom or to grab a snack from the kitchen would be beyond inconvenient. And the energy costs with all of those huge windows to keep it air-conditioned…. I hate form over function design.

    This house is by Rick Joy Architects. Nearby is another Rick Joy project as well as a new residence by former Rick Joy Architects alum Cade Hayes (aka DUST).

    As owner of Desert Nomad House I need to point out that the architect for the house is Rick Joy.

    Crosby Doe is acting as agent for the house and can be reached at architectureforesale.com.

    Best regards,

    Walt Cecil
