Joshua Tree Home
This house, built from a cluster of Origin modules, is located in Joshua Tree rocky desert (Southern California) which is a national park since 1994. The location of the house promotes much of natural daylighting and shadow side reduces overheating, which is so uncomfortable in desert. The owners wanted to save a connection with a nature, so exterior living spaces are as important as the indoor ones. Joshua Tree home consists of two Origin modules, which are located at a right angle and create shaded courtyard area. An additional module is placed at a slight distance and used as a cottage for a guest. The main construction includes ash cabinetry, Caesarstone countertops, bamboo radiant floors, Anderson windows and a photovoltaic system over the carport. Sometimes Joshua Tree Home is opened for visiting of public tours having a desert trip. You can see the home’s interior decoration at the photos below.
