Los Angeles-based architect Robert Stone designed Acido Dorado, a gold house that is a mirage in a Southern California desert. This abstract house features a sloped roof and a tinted glass grid among steel ironwork that distinguishes the house, creating a golden shimmer on the sandy landscape. The glass walls make way for bright, light-filled interiors which exude minimalist elegance in their aesthetic of peace and serenity. Echoing the striking facade, the indoors are finished in a simple palette of gold and champagne in the warm sunlight. Set into the glass of the front of the house, a large heart figure puts a unique stamp on this unusual desert residence.
