The Folly is a beautifully crafted desert retreat, created by Cohesion Studio, that aims to bring the wonders of off-grid living to the distinctive landscape of California's Joshua Tree National Park.
This particular dwelling embraces a rusted aesthetic rather than dismissing it as so many conventional architectural creations, and the end result is a dwelling that seamlessly blends into the rugged environment that it inhabits.
As far as facilities are concerned, this desert retreat is equipped with a solar array system to take care of electricity needs, while a greywater installation takes care of water requirements. The building also allows users to use an iPhone app to keep tabs on energy and lighting.
Currently available for rent on the Airbnb platform, the Folly desert retreat is a prime example of an aesthetically respectful and environmentally friendly off-grid dwelling.
