Josh Schweitzer’s Monument House in the Desert


This unique getaway was designed by architect Josh Schweitzer and was used as a private getaway up until recently. Freshly remodeled, the cubist-inspired cabins feature bold colors and all the amenities of home.

There’s a great room and adjacent kitchen, along with a single bedroom (first floor) and bathroom with a luxurious walk-in shower. The third structure is a covered outdoor eating area, and you’ll find a patio area between the buildings. The complex stands in the middle of the Joshua Tree desert, with striking rock formations and mountains in the distance.

    Looks like a tiny playhouse, or even a cardboard house, in the last picture.
    Not sure if I could live in it though.

    What it looks like is a blight on the natural beauty. Had it been painted in desert colors of tan to very light brown/light gray molted especially, it wouldn’t destroy the beauty so much.
    As for the house inside, what an empty sterile place.
    I do like the door /window casing, just too tall inside. Hate to heat, cool it.
