kuluz residence
floor plan

this project was inspired by the rawness of the desert floor. Like the expansiveness of the Mojave Desert, a low profile of extensive overhangs protect the home and provide shade for outdoor activities.


the interior is open and inviting. With many light filled spaces and views of both the immediate landscape and the mountains and city lights in the distance, no room goes without a connection to its exterior.

kuluz residence

the kuluz residence is an exercise in restraint. the modest home for a young family on a budget takes advantage of views and solar angles to create a comfortable, modern home. we used a simple palette of materials that responds well to the desert climate, low roof overhangs for shading, and expansive glazing to create a home that lives as comfortably inside at does outside.
