Desert Canopy House

Palm Springs, California
Location
  • Palm Springs, California
  • This International Award-winning Hybrid House design came out of the context: the extreme heat of the desert in Palm Springs, CA. A stunning view of the St Jacinto mountain range asked for large windows but faces west. This needed protection from sun infiltration and led to the dramatic, floor-to-ceiling glass wall with a sweeping overhang. The architects are proud to have created the first zero-net house (new construction) in Palm Springs.

    Modern home with kitchen, concrete floor, concrete counter, pendant lighting, white cabinet, range hood, range, refrigerator, wine cooler, and undermount sink. The glass wall on one end of the kitchen frames the mountain views. The cabinetry, all glass-fronted lowers,  with a convection stove and cylindrical vent make this room about the view and the art.
