House of the Week 028: Desert Nomad House

Built along the base of a mountain range in Tucson, Arizona the Desert Nomad House by architect Rick Joy is composed of a cluster of three vividly rusted metal boxes arranged around particular views. The interior of the boxes in contrast to the harshness of the desert climate, are finished with soft maple floors and wall panelling exuding a human comfort.
