High Desert House by Kendrick Bangs Kellogg
The ‘High Desert House’ in Joshua Tree is a sight to behold, designed by California-based studio Kendrick Bangs Kellogg.
“As the story goes, in 1986 Kellogg received a handwritten note from artists Jay and Bev Doolittle that read: ‘Dear Mr. Kellogg, My wife and I recently purchased a very interesting, though unconventional, building site in the California desert.’
Kellogg was intrigued, and upon visiting the couple and seeing their unusual, majestic 10-acre plot nestled within a cluster of massive boulders in the middle of the desert, he took on the project, and with carte blanche, designed what is probably one of the most striking organic modern residences to date.
After Kellogg completed the building, famed artisanal designer John Vugrin came on board, and spent the next 14 years meticulously crafting all the furniture and decor elements for the interiors.”Architecture Interior Design Posted on April 1, 2019
