The Modern Wolfden Casita

The Modern Wolfden Casita
Project Year: 2022
Location: Pioneertown

An existing vacation rental needed more rooms and we added an ADU with two bedrooms, bathrooms and a kitchen/dining/ hang out space.

The Modern Wolfden is one of the most successful rental in the High Desert (Yucca Valley/ Pioneertown/ Joshua Tree/ Twentynine Palms), due to its unique combo of prime contemporary architecture and design. The main building (opened up in 2019) is a 1,100-squarefoot-building with 2 bedrooms and 2.5 baths. The concept is based on a contemporary international lifestyle with flowing bounderies. Indoor and outsoor living merges, because this is what renters are looking for. They want to experience the desert landscape, the wildlife, and the awesome nightskies that the region is known for.

The Casita (opened in June 2022) is a new structure of 976 squarefeet with the same approach. Stylish big bedrooms with slider doors and big window openings, en-suite bathrooms with plastered walls, and an exquisite kitchen/dining/ living room space that offers everything that visitors need. The minimalist yet cozy vibe welcomes you to lean back and relax. You immediately feel at home, although you are far from home.

The landscape architecture continues the authentic concept of the main building. Desert plants meet succulents, cacti and olive trees. Less is more and native is king.
