The Ultimate Desert Retreat By Woods + Dangaran, $5.75M


Elevated just above its boulder-strewn site and spanning a natural arroyo, this deceptively simple desert retreat by the L.A.-based architectural firm of Woods + Dangaran is nonetheless intimately connected to the landscape and its mountain backdrop. 

Composed in a palette of finely-textured masonry blocks, earth-toned plaster, expanses of glass and deep horizontals, it’s one of the most extraordinary recently-built homes built in Palm Springs and firmly within the canon of Desert Modernism, a tradition that looks back decades to Richard Neutra and Albert Frey. Formed as an H, the two wings of the house– the garage/casita structure and the main house– are joined by a glass hall seamlessly passing through a trellised atrium.

What We Love: No lawn. No palm trees. Just a serenely sheltering Modernist retreat in the desert, exquisitely detailed.
