This place is wonderful, and I'm not surprised about who the designer is. Being a desert dweller myself I can see so much value in the way he was able to capture the views and the huge windows without sacrificing the most important feature, which is in finding the best possible way to stay cool, almost like underground but still not feeling like a mole. It is amazingly well thought out and makes the best of the surroundings without giving up the comfort...I love it.
