Heat Proof House Design by Lloyd Russell

Simple desert house located in Pioneertown California, the house was made of recycled and durable materials as well as a prominent steel canopy that shelters and shades the home. This house was designed by Lloyd Russell architect for Jim Austin who asks him to create “the ultimate desert structure”. Desert is a hot zone, so the architect must be create any solution to keep the temperature down inside the house by using the canopy. When the sun hits the canopy, some of that heat is reflected back into the sky while the rest is absorbed by the canopy. And since there’s a wind buffer, the design creates a cooling mechanism to keep the house relatively shaded and cool. It’s a very simple life, so you want it to be pretty simple architecture.
