Los Angeles-based architectural firm Marmol Radziner has designed the Desert House, a prototype prefab home located in Desert Hot Springs in California.
Built as a vacation home for Leo Marmol’s family, the house has three bedrooms and two bathrooms in about 2,100 square feet of indoor living space, and an additional 2,400 square feet of outdoor living space.
Completed in 2005, the house sits on a 5-acre lot and was offered for sale at $1,195 million in 2011.
Desert House by Marmol Radziner:
“The Desert House, Marmol Radziner Prefab’s prototype home is oriented to best capture views of San Jacinto peak and the surrounding mountains. Located on a five-acre site in Desert Hot Springs, California, the house extends through the landscape with covered outdoor living areas, which double the 2000 square-foot interior spaces. A detached carport allows the owners to “leave the car behind” as they approach their home.
Designed for Leo Marmol and his wife Alisa Becket, the Desert House employs four house modules and six deck modules. Sheltered living spaces blend the indoors with the outdoors, simultaneously extending and connecting the house to the north wing, which holds a guest house and studio space.
