I don’t know why anyone would want to live in the dessert, but if you are going to live there, it would be best to live in a house like this. Designed by architect Kendrick Bangs Kellog, this house was meant to serve as a piece of art as well as a home. It may look like something out of a sci-fi movie but it has all the comforts you are used too and then some. If you’re looking to make the move to the Coachella Valley you’re in luck. This spot just hit the market with a price tag of $3 Million.
There’s nothing like a house that truly takes advantage of that California sunshine. This house on West Knoll in LA features a great private backyard surrounded by lush vegetation. Amit Apel Design Inc. completed this house last year. Someone take me to the west coast immediately.

This boathouse located in Muskoka Lakes, Ontario, Canada is the perfect place to blow off some steam after a long week of being an all-around bad ass. The first level of this modern home has a garage capable of storing both of your speed boats. The living quarters are located on the second floor which include an open living room, large balcony, full kitchen, and a master bedroom and guest suite. The best feature of the house, however, might be the fact that it’s located on the water. Take a tour of the boathouse below.
I imagine that this is where James Bond spends his time when he’s not chasing down the bad guys. L’Apogée Courchevel is a luxury ski chalet located at the very top of a former Olympic ski jump in France. Get more info, and book a trip over on their website.
The Vertical Glass House is the opposite of conventional housing design. It has floors where the windows should be and windows where the floors should be. Architect Yung Ho Chang designed it that way on purpose. According to the Ho Chang, the house is a 90-degree rotation of the typical glass houses that were being built during the Modernist period. The windowless structure consists of 4-levels which are divided by glass floors. From the basement, occupants can see all the way up to the top floor. The house was originally designed for an urban housing development competition. It now serves as a guest house for visiting artists.
Located in Palm Springs, the “Black Desert House” was designed by architect Marc Atlan. The blacked out home sits in stark contrast to its desert surroundings. The interior features a sunken level living room, floor to ceiling glass windows, and a black-on-black theme throughout.
