Hidden Valley Home by Marmol Radziner

Given our mid-century tastes in architecture recently built projects don’t tend to crop up every day that impress us, I guess we are rather selective. However, today I’ve been admiring the work of Marmol Radziner again and this prefabricated build they’ve put together in the Moab desert of Utah which has been used as a vacation home by it’s two adventure seeking owners.
