Desert Retreat in Shoshone California- The spectacular building site for this house is located near Death Valley in the Small town of Shoshone, California
With the soaring desert heat is was crucial to implement passive solar, and solar thermal tower design features. The strategic placement of shade elements, window and
exterior door openings. The area was rich in highly mineralized hot well water from a small nearby Oasis. With a purification system it was potable, and usable for
landscaping. It also allowed for a natural fed small jacuzzi & pool. In the winter time, temperatures drop significantly at night making the jacuzzi a great evening pass time.
There is no interference of any man made light making the night sky quite spectacular with stars.
