Desert in the Dusk: Earth inspired house is a raw and natural delight

Desert in the Dusk: Earth inspired house is a raw and natural delight

11 February, 2014  |  Exterior, House Interior

This beautiful house is the work of renowned architect James Cioffi and was built in 2006 on a huge plot with perfect view of the mountains. The linear structure of this building is typical of modern design, yet the earthy colour palette chosen, is reminiscent of a desert styled outhouse. One of the unusual features of this house is the corrugated metal roofing that overhangs the patio, and the raw concrete breeze blocks that surround the house. This almost industrial addition to this desert styled house, makes a very unique design. Inside, the interior is a mirror of the exterior with earthy hues and a warm and inviting look. The very unusual textured stone wall in the living area is a stunning feature in this room, and really adds to the very natural, dusky style of the house.
