Located in Desert Hot Springs, California, the 2000 square foot Desert House was designed for Leo Marmol and his wife Alisa Becket. Built with a steel floor frame, steel columns, and a steel roof frame, it was the prototype for Marmol Radziner Prefab. The house is completely solar powered and minimizes the need for heating and cooling through the use of shades and concrete floors. Los Angeles based Marmol Radziner Prefab specializes in sustainable prefab. The house is built, shipped, and assembled on location. Predesigned and custom homes are available. The beautiful photos above were taken by the talented photographer David Glomb.
