Located at the edge of the desert on a hill at the eastern fringe of the city of Las Cruces, New Mexico, the Desert Home capitalizes on expansive views of the mountains and city. While protected from the dynamic desert climate, the home was designed to allow natural elements to filter through. The sun is used for lighting, while rainwater collected from the roof, is directed towards landscape features.
The structure and its distinct features protects its residents from the harsh desert climate by acting as a lens to filter, focus and diffuse the sunlight all the while embracing the presence of the elements and surrounding environment.
