There are so many good things to say about Simon de Aguero's 'Brittlebrush' that I almost don't know where to start. 'Brittlebrush' is a housing design for winter residents in Arizona that want to get really, really close to nature.
Sitting on a small sloped piece of land leading to its unique design, Simon de Aguero's house is literally built into the desert. The whole structure isn't too big, but it is incredibly open and features modern amenities like a fireplace. If you're truly looking to get back to nature sans sleeping bags and tents then 'Brittlebrush' is the way to go.
