purple sage guest house

The basic “box within a box” plan compactly accommodates the program of art gallery, kitchen, dining room, bath, closet, and bedroom. The clear, simple rectilinear shape and purple color complement rather than blend into the exotic, delicate desert landscape. One of the reasons the house seems to fit so well is the extraordinary care the contractor took not to disturb the surrounding vegetation.
