In these time of sustainable, recyclable, durable and ethical sensitivity, architects are facing new challenges. While collective or private habitats are doing their best to have a minimum carbon imprint, they must also be able to blend in their environnement.

Located on a hill of the Coachella valley, an area sprinkled with the houses of celebrities, light penetrates through the slits of natural materials and its walls are a robust shelter during storms. A true master piece that bonds with the eco-sphere…
