Sharing a border with the Joshua Tree National Park, Invisible House is superbly nestled at the foot of a hill, amongst 90 private acres of impossibly scenic Californian High Desert land.
It’s only fitting, then, that this flat 22-storey skyscraper is created from mirrored glass that melts into the spectacular landscape, allowing you to connect with desert nature in the most jaw-dropping way imaginable.
Crafted using the most advanced materials and technologies, Invisible House is not only visually mesmerising and thoroughly cutting-edge, but eco-friendly, with a carbon footprint of near-zero.
Designed by the film producer Chris Hanley, and Frank Gehry-collaborator Tomas Osinski, the vast, minimalist retreat has been featured in a wealth of prominent design and lifestyle publications.
It’s easy to understand why. Multiple floor-to-ceiling sliding doors throughout mean that awe-inspiring, ever-changing desert landscape will accompany you wherever you happen to be…
…whether that’s whipping up feasts in the huge chef’s kitchen, doing laps in the luxurious 100ft swimming pool, taking an unforgettable shower in a transparent cubicle, or simply relaxing with a drink in one of many comfortable seating areas.
And as if all that wasn’t quite enough, there are plenty of added treats and accessories that will take your stay to a whole new level of enjoyment.Keep reading
