A mirror-clad desert house in California, US

Via Invisible House

POA direct
California’s Invisible House blends into its remote rocky surrounds, thanks to a 30-metre long reflective exterior. The glass and steel desert property is located two hours outside of Los Angeles, close to downtown Joshua Tree. Architect Tomas Osinsk designed the mirror-clad home, working together with American Psycho producer Chris Hanley – who now lets the house out for film and photo shoots as well as events.

Architects Massimo Gnocchi and Paolo Danesi designed this concept for a modular, prefab mountain hut which is based on a sliced A-frame cabin. Pale plywood panelling contrasts the hut’s darkened exterior, which has a rustic look that echoes the pitch of a mountain range. The Mountain Refuge layouts can be reconfigured according to the owner’s needs and the architects are taking enquiries from anyone with a location in mind. Get a closer look.
