Though not officially on the PS ModCom High Desert tour, I found this cube house by the students of Samuel Mockbee’s Auburn University Rural Studio very interesting. Also please note it is clad in rusting metal! There must be something in the air up here!
After a few quick snapshots, I continued on my way to the Mohave Sands Motel for a much needed adult beverage.
Crisp metal detailing appears everywhere – from the caps of stucco walls to landscape edge detailing that keeps the desert at bay. The repurposed grating also works well as a shower screen in the private outdoor bathing courtyard.
If it’s a soak you’re after, a recycled tub a great way to relax while vintage vinyl is spinning an Hawaiian serenade.
