Home Tour: Organic Architecture In Joshua Tree

Organic Architecture

Designed by architect Kendrick Bangs Kellogg in the 1980s, the 4,643-square-foot home rises up out of the California desert like an arachnid. This is an amazing example of organic architecture and today, Most Expensive Homes is going to show you everything! Prepare to be amazed:

Home Tour: Organic Architecture In Joshua TreeWith its 26 cast-concrete vertebrae that rise up as columns and then fan out to create a roof, this house is one of his most major masterpieces. It was commissioned by artist Bev Doolittle and her husband Jay in 1984. With interior designer John Vugrin working in conjunction on almost every single detail, it took 20 years to complete.

Home Tour: Organic Architecture In Joshua TreeThis is organic architecture at its sublime and also at its most dramatic. The underlying shape is soft and rounded like a pebble, and yet, like a desert plant, the house has an overarching spikiness to it.

The structure is formed of 26 vertebrae that rise through the interior as vertical columns and fan out horizontally to create a roof above. Light is let in through the gaps in these spines, and there are no traditional windows.

Home Tour: Organic Architecture In Joshua TreeThere is no true ceiling in the house. The concrete pillars come together like two hands about to hold. Between the fingers are almost-invisible windows, as seen here in the master suite.

Home Tour: Organic Architecture In Joshua TreeThis is far from living in a museum, though. It is a living, breathing home that continuously unlocks awe from its new owners.

What do you think about this organic architecture? Feel free to comment and share!
