situated on a 90-acre plot, the joshua tree residence visualized by london-based whitaker studio sits atop the vast californian mountainside. while visiting their empty plot of land in joshua tree, the clients came across a project previously envisioned by lead designer james whitaker that was never realized. this 200sqm residence conglomerates several shipping containers, forming its starburst-shaped exoskeleton.

every container is orientated to maximize views across the landscape or to use the topography to provide privacy, depending on their individual use. whitaker studio’s residence features three ensuite bedrooms, a kitchen and a spacious living room, each displaying a different aspect of joshua tree. additionally, a car garage roofed in solar panels provides power for the house.
