Constructed from local desert rocks, the exterior walls relate to the natural setting in which they sit.
Beautiful, organic landscape was designed naturally around the trees to overlook a nearby pond.
The entry consists of a wide foyer which opens dramatically into a large living area. The space is flooded with natural light thanks to a wall of glass sliding doors which open onto a patio that leads to an outdoor pool with a distinctly vintage vibe.
A lap pool runs alongside the west facade of a hybrid prefab home in Palm Springs by Sander Architects. “Our version of prefab,” explains architect Whitney Sander, “involves the use of building shells that are the ‘heavy lifting’ parts of any house: main structure, secondary  structure, and (often) building skin.”
Delighted with the result, they requested additional structures, including a pool house with a dining area that opens to the outdoors. Rising from the edge of the pool deck, a planted overhang shelters a gym and sauna below.
Once unkempt terrain (1), the lot was replanted by Elysian Landscapes. Board-formed concrete walls now hold a lush collection of Bloodgood Japanese maple trees, Canyon Prince wild rye grasses, and Blue Fox Tail agaves.

The patio is equipped with IKEA furniture; the previous residents chose the sliders and windows, which are by Sierra Pacific
A rough board-formed concrete wall hems in the courtyard garden creating an organic looking transition to the wild scrub oak beyond.
From the interior of the courtyard the blue Uintah Mountains can be seen sprawling along the horizon.
