STEP INSIDE THIS MODERN CAVE-LIKE HOME
It’s More Than Two Decades in the Making!
Blending against its rocky background, this home in Joshua Tree, California is a piece of architectural marvel. Construction for the so-called Doolittle House began in 1988. Almost every piece in both its interiors and exteriors are customized and intricately designed.
The house in itself looks like a large sculpture as it is made out of carefully sculpted concrete slabs. The house is supported by 26 concrete columns embedded into the bedrock of its surroundings to make it stable. It took more than a decade for the actual house to be finished.
The attention to detail extends even to the inside of the house. Natural aesthetic design and lighting was used to give off a modern monolithic vibes. It’s literally like being inside a modern cave. The interiors took two decades to finish as every little detail down to the door handles and light switches was painstakingly customized to match the overall aesthetic of the place.
The house was sold in 2014 for $3 million.
The furniture in the Desert House is an echo of what the Doolittles were into and the desert environment: the colors and shapes are very ‘Joshua Tree,’ those skeletal shapes suggest themselves,” John Vurgin said about the house.
