CONCEPT CASITA

Luckman Residence
Borrego Springs, California
2005

This concept Casita, situated in the Anza-Borrego Desert south of Palm Springs and east of San Diego, is a human-scale, handmade structure made from materials native to this desert location. Clay bricks, plaster, rough wood beams, and clay tiles in earthy, geometric forms display Pizzulli and Vitale’s sensitivity to the relationship between architectural forms and materials and their surroundings.
