2020 Architecture Citation Award
Sited on a rocky plateau outside of Palm Desert, this residence is nestled within a constellation of boulders, overlooking the Coachella Valley and the San Jacinto Mountain Range. The home's diagram is a triptych of elements: a floating roof plane, a collection of wooden volumes, and two concrete anchor walls.
The jury felt that every aspect of this home is perfectly executed, and was amazed by the way that the canopy frames the sky above the pool to add new possibilities to the vocabulary.
