Nestled in a single of California’s most famous and desirable micro-areas, Palm Desert, the Andreas Canyon Residence by Kirkpatrick Architects is a welcoming and nurturing loved ones retreat, as nicely as the greatest enjoyment enclave. With crisp vertical and horizontal architectural elements unfolding across a sculptural landscape of indigenous rock, plantings and water, this peaceful village generates harmony by gracefully blending indoor and outside, modernity and warmth, and privacy and openness.
Central to the layout is the harmonic integration of organic aspects indoors, outside, and all spaces in-between. Portions of the residence bury into the organic hillside with the bare rock exposed to the inside, while other architectural varieties cantilever out above the hillside. Water flows during the property, entering and exiting the property from the main family members pool and bridging out to an infinity edge that creates a fluid horizon to the golf course beyond. A ‘flying’ roof in excess of the principal entertaining spaces reaches out to greet the visitor, its silhouette growing and falling in rhythm with the mountain profiles that surround the area.
I do not know about you but for me desert homes feel so zen and calm and the the outdoor location is like an oasis – so when can I move in??
