Custom Prefab Homes - Desert House Prototype by Marmol Radziner Prefab

The Desert House Design is a custom prefabricated homes projected by Marmol Radziner Prefab and is located on a five-acre site in Desert Hot Springs, California designed for Leo Marmol and his wife, Alisa Becket. The house is oriented to best capture views of San Jacinto peak and the surrounding mountains. The house extends through the landscape with additional, covered outdoor living areas, which double the 2000 square foot interior spaces. A detached prefab carport allows the owners to leave the car behind as they approach their home.

The Desert House was designed for principal Leo Marmol, and his wife Alisa Becket. It was completed in Spring 2005 and is the prototype for Marmol Radziner Prefab. The Desert House employs four house modules and six deck modules, a quantity chosen to suit the wide desert landscape.

The climate inspired us to create covered outdoor living areas, and we developed sunshade modules to provide solar protection. Sheltered living spaces blend indoors with outdoors, simultaneously extending and connecting the house to the north wing, which holds a guest house and studio space. By forming an “L,” the home also establishes a protected, exterior environment that includes a pool and fire pit.

The Desert House derives 100% of its power from solar panels, while sunshades on the south and west facades minimize the impact of the harsh summer sun. In colder months, concrete floors provide passive solar heat gain, helping us to make the home sustainable.

Desert house, so it means it could withstand sand storms if there is one? By the way, I noticed the glass walls. It would be beautiful during sunsets. Nice design.
