Badwood Ranch
(# 222)
Images Description Credits
Badwood Ranch is a 1,200 square foot single-family home set in Pioneertown, California. The inspiration for the design came from the beauty and the harshness of the surrounding desert site, while trying to stay within a very constrained budget of $350k.

With such limited resources, the design of the house needed to be kept simple, which led to a minimalist design approach and a focus on outdoor living spaces. The main feature of the project is an expansive roof trellis, that provides shade for the structure and for multiple outdoor living spaces. The projectís barebones materials palette, consisting of stucco, telephone poles, and Douglas fir, is typical of the surrounding ranch-like neighborhood context. Telephone poles are a common construction material at ranches, but seldom applied to dwellings themselves. In this project, the poles allow the trellis to cost-effectively reach 25 ft high into the air, creating multi-level outdoor spaces to celebrate the beautiful desert setting.
