A reflection of its environment, quite literally, the mirror-clad Invisible House provides astonishing views of the desert beauty of Joshua Tree National Park in the reflections cast in its tempered glass exterior. Imagined by film producer Chris Hanley and architect Tomas Osinski, the long, rectangular volume was designed to resemble a New York skyscraper lying on its side, stretched across the rocky desert ground.
Raised up on cylindrical concrete structures, the 5,5000 square foot home makes for an illusory horizon thanks to the mirrored shell that catches its surroundings in full glare. The vast, minimal interior space features four bedrooms and a huge pool with film projector screen hung above it to aid the luxury. Viewed from a distance, there’s something of the static caravan about the mirrored building, its silver oblong shape delivering opulent, extravagant Airstream vibes – or is that just us? Check out the images below.
The Invisible House can be booked here.
