Tomas Osinski X The Mirror House: it’s a mirage

If you were to draw a skyscraper on a piece of paper, you would sketch what resembles a huge 3D rectangle. Ideally, you would cover it with a mirror roof for the sky to reflect on it. Now imagine the same thing, but put horizontally, and in the middle of the desert! The architect and artist Tomas Osinski and the film producer Chris Hanley have managed to make this crazy idea a reality in the heart of the famous Joshua Tree Desert Park in California. The effect is striking: the building naturally appears and disappears within the landscape. Solar cells installed on the roof produce the energy needed for electricity and water. Inside, surrounded by a chic interior design, a 30-meter long swimming corridor runs along the living room, which also serves as a dining room. On the west side, the sliding walls offer a breathtaking view of the sunset. It’s surprising enough to be enchanted by such an environment of rocks and sand, but within these glass mirrored walls everything is of extraordinary nature. The house is available for rent. It comprises 4 bedrooms. From each bed, huge walls open up in cinemascope, giving the already spectacular landscape a dramatic dimension. One question remains unanswered: is it more beautiful seen from the inside or the outside? To answer this question, there is only one solution: to book your stay on referredbyruby.com.
