Black Desert House in the Mojave Transcends Time

Designed by creative director Marc Allen with architecture firm Oller & Pejic and interior design company, Moderne Builders, The Black Desert House sits perched in the Mojave Desert. Surrounded by a stark and desolate environment, the architectural achievement uses its surrounding landscape as much as its interior to complete its striking design. The project’s statement promises, “Five minutes from civilization, the site nevertheless gives the sensation of being beyond time.”
