Architects Cocoon Commons Deliver A Triumph Of Contrasting Design Among Joshua Tree's Epic Landscape

Placed in a remarkable setting among wild and unspoiled expanses of desert and ancient rock formations, this unique holiday home in Joshua Tree uses glass to expand your horizons and blur the lines between the quiet sophistication of the interiors and the drama of the landscape.

Designed and commissioned by the owner as a getaway from hectic city life, Yucca Valley-based Cocoon Commons + Associates executed a triumph of contrasting design, in concert with the otherworldly beauty of the desert. By observing key environmental principles of a smaller footprint, minimal disturbance to the natural beauty of the surroundings, and smart use of sustainable design solutions, the home manages to stand out but with subtlety in its impact. The interiors are designed to emphasize open spaces and a connection with nature, with slide-away walls of glass that make boundaries fall away, allowing for a magnificent relationship with the landscape.

Immersed in hushed silence and privacy with the stark beauty of the desert all around, this uniquely designed home is a blissful and stylish retreat in an unforgettable setting.

Settled into an astonishing desert landscape of ancient boulders, Yuccas and Joshua trees, high into Pinon Ridge, the home emerges from the scenery as a see-through glass box, with an asymmetrical cantilevered roof allowing natural light to flood the interiors, while still sheltering them from the desert sun.

​The main open-plan living space is the central focal point and includes the sitting area and dining room with a dramatic black kitchen and bar at the far end. The sliding, floor to ceiling glass walls open up to the wild desert landscapes from each room, allowing nature in.

The three en-suite bedrooms are positioned on either side of the house with stunning views out to the rocks and the desert beyond, one with a fab soaking tub surrounded by glass,. Furnished with a vintage-modern aesthetic mixed with a dose of contemporary glamour, the design contrasts with as well as showcases the desert’s raw beauty. 

The grounds have largely been left as they were found, with the exception of a refreshing saltwater pool with shaded lounge spaces, a cooling outdoor rock shower and areas for stargazing.

YUCCA VALLEY

Set within the boundaries of the town of Yucca Valley, the area lies just fifteen minutes from Joshua Tree National Park and thousands of acres of the Sand to Snow National Monument crisscrossed by hiking trails for miles of outdoor adventure. The historic old western Pioneertown, a kitschy Hollywood relic founded in the 1940s as an authentic frontier town movie set is a ten-minute drive, with a few shops, cafes and galleries to visit.

Less than an hour’s drive to Palm Springs, there are also a few interesting local museums and art venues such as the Noah Purifoy Outdoor Desert Art Museum, and the famed Integratron. Further afield, the San Jacinto mountains rise above the desert floor and are lined with miles of hiking trails at a cooler elevation. Indian Canyon and Palm Canyon are also within driving distance for rural getaways in the Coachella Valley area. Los Angeles is a two-hour drive.
