“…A minimal dwelling retreat consisting of a mere 320 square feet. As a retreat for thoughtful repose, the Marfa lightbox embraces the site and landscape of the south west. Offering unique connections to the local landscape and the landscapes beyond, including the stellar and fictional.”

  1. It doesn't look like a very good passive solar design for a desert dwelling. Marfa,Texas is definitely in the desert. It has too large Southern and Western exposures. Virtually no shading.

  2. That's really cool! I want to have something like that on my yard for my kids to have the coolest playing spot ever. And if you stay with your friends in a summer vacation a house like that, you will surely have a lot of chances to talk to each other.
