geometric palm springs residence by woods + dangaran celebrates desert modernism


horizontal lines & natural materials characterize ‘desert palisades’ by woods + dangaran

 

on a sloping site in palm springs, california, woods + dangaran built a private residence that connects deeply with its surroundings. sitting peacefully amid the boulders and spanning a natural arroyo, the ‘desert palisades’ house is lifted above the existing site, yet still maintains a powerful relationship with the earth. horizontal lines, natural materials, and strong connecting points between interior and exterior complete the dwelling, celebrating the principles of desert modernism.

preserving a close bond with the natural surroundings 

 

shaped as an elongated rectangular with protruding overhangs and shade structures, the residence presents itself as a geometric pavilion encircled by rugged boulders. from siting to floor plan to finishes, the dwelling seeks to preserve a close bond with its natural context. for this reason, woods + dangaran (find more here) chose earth-toned plaster walls and textured concrete masonry units, tying the building to the site. eaves wrapped in brass paneling complete the volumetry, and strategically-placed floor-to-ceiling glazing frames stunning views of the desert in all directions. 

 

the living and dining space, kitchen, as well as children’s bedrooms, and primary bedroom suite are allocated in the main rectangular structure. meanwhile, a glass-enclosed bridge links the two wings of the home, generating a central atrium that can be viewed from nearly every room. large sliding glass doors run the length of the great room and offer an unobstructed transition to an outdoor dining area, deck, pool, spa, fireplace, and lounge area.
