A modern black house in the California desert
Designed by the renowned creative director Marc Atlan in collaboration with an architectural office Oller & Pejic, “The Black Desert House” is a modern black house, which offers a fascinating view of Joshua Tree National Park in California. The single story home is a minimalist, distinctive retreat in the desert where you can enjoy ever changing panoramas of color, light and shadow.
Modern black house in the desert
Concentrated around an inner courtyard, the kitchen with dining area became the focal point of the interior design. A small staircase leads to a sunken living room, where floor-to-ceiling picture windows frame the view of the impressive grounds. Throughout the house, black walls, quartz, high-gloss lacquer, anthracite and darkened steel form the perfect backdrop for the carefully selected use of color.
Modern black house with pool
On the southeastern part of the property, the three bedrooms open to a pool with black tiles. The adjoining terrace is protected between the house and a boulder. At night the rocks are gently lit from below.
Stairs to the house entrance
Although only 30 minutes from Palm Springs, the serene and mystical atmosphere makes residents and guests feel as if they are completely separated from the hectic city life. The black desert house is currently being made available for professional uses such as fashion photo shoots, advertising campaigns, and TV and film production.
