The main living space sits on the desert. As it goes to the east and west, the topography drops over 12 feet in elevation. Steel columns and cantilevered beam supports hold up the rest of the house. The axis of the cantilevered overhang above the entry continues to the opposite end of the house, above the south patio and deck. movable glass partitions separate the indoor/outdoor spaces creating an outdoor pavilion experience. The home is sited such that one feels as if they are situated in the open desert surrounded by the mountains beyond.
