They found peace and peace in the midst of the thirsty desert of the United States.
Not everyone could find moving far from the big city to settle in the middle of a desert.
But for this family there was stillness, tranquility and the spectacular surroundings that were dragged.
In the middle of one of America’s largest deserts, they have created a luxurious dream home of a home.
The Desert Nomad House called the project was designed by the architects of Rick Joy Architects in 2005.
On the outskirts of Tucson, Arizona, hidden away far into the gloomy Sonora Desert, you find this ultra-modern house, how much use of glass and large window surfaces makes you feel the colors, moods and nature of the desert all the time inside of the house.
All good things are three
The entire residence consists of three separate houses made of steel and glass – a sharp human-made contrast to the surrounding area.
The one building houses the bedroom and a small bathroom.
House number two is the work area with a home office and the third and last building serves as a living room, kitchen and dining area, where the family spends most of the time.
The interior of the entire home is simple and very modern, and the family’s impressive collection of art can be displayed in unique surroundings.
The large windows provide daylight from all sides, and when it’s time to night, the sunsets over the desert landscape are amazing.
There are contrasts between inside and out that are striking in this unique residence and the environment it is inserted into:
natural and cooked. Inside and out. Intimate and magnificent. Modern and old. Light and shadow. Sharp edges and lubricated cacti.
The interior reflects the dusty and reddish color scheme in the desert, while the exterior of glass and steel is designed to withstand the extreme climate with minimal maintenance.
Compact in magnificent surroundings
Although the award winning glass and steel dice of Rick Joy Architects are relatively compact in living space, the house feels much bigger as the boundaries between the inside and out are effectively wiped out by the large windows and generous outdoor areas.
The architects were conscious when they made the house as three bricks next to each other as opposed to a continuous building.
Here you should be able to distinguish both rest and awake areas, but also by moving between the buildings time after time be made aware of the beautiful nature surrounding the house.
