Desert Palisades Guardhouse was originally built as an entrance to an amazing neighborhood that was to be built in Palm Springs. The exterior treatment was chosen to reflect the rugged and harsh environment of the the desert. The rusted exterior of the structure melds well with its surrounding landscape. One can not ignore that stellar roof line. The engineering behind that overhang is in a class of its own. I think I would change that into a patio and stay cool in the desert heat. The interiors are nice, with the walls of glass offering a constant reminder of the wilderness in which you live.
