The Black House

Perched between rock formations in the high desert city of Yucca Valley, California, sits a black house, the origins of which started with the observation of shadows. Specifically, the idea that the sunlight in the desert is often so bright that the eye’s only resting place is the shadows.  This was how Marc Atlan described his inspiration for his second home in the desert near Joshua Tree National Park.

Marc Atlan set out to create a unique hideaway unlike anything else in the area. Atlan, a creative director for brands like Comme des Garçons, Tom Ford and Marc Jacobs, devoted the same type of creative energy exerted for his clients into creating the property ultimately dubbed “the Black Desert House.”
