The desert is associated with being a barren land where few creatures survive, yet the Desert House by Lake Flato Architects makes a home that could be mistaken for a mirage. Located in Santa Fe, New Mexico, the Desert House by Lake Flato Architects is designed to be low to the ground in all respects and able to live in symmetry with the landscape.
Raw materials are the main focus within the Desert House by Lake Flato Architects to help bring the outside in and blend out the man-made aesthetic for a more natural one. Almost like a hideaway, the Desert House by Lake Flato Architects keeps a low profile from the inside to the out and is anything but shabby as it holds the extensive collection of fine art that the inhabitant owns.
