In the hot, dry desert with mountain vistas sits a cool white pearl, like a mirage in the landscape. An art gallery blends the client's workshop into the living areas; the curved volumes counterbalance the spherical astronomy dome. Light metal cladding reflects the desert heat; translucent acrylic shades the central courtyard. A spacious roof deck holds guests for stargazing events; artificial grass around a shaded pool conserves water and provides an unexpected oasis in the scorching climate.
