Have a look at the Desert House in Palm Springs, California by Jim Jennings Architecture.
As a native Californian, architect Jim Jennings has a deeply embedded connection to the geometries of landscape and to the abstract qualities of natural light, which is reflected in his architectural work. In 2009, the architect has completed this desert house outside of Palm Springs. Situated on a desert site of undisturbed native vegetation, the modern home is defined by an 8-foot-high concrete wall. It supports a massive steel roof structure and encases two courtyards. The retreat has been designed that everything inside of the wall functions as living space. The generous use of glass results in a feeling of being more connected to the environment. In contrast, the distinctive wall creates a sense of security and privacy.
