The 5,500 square-foot private property, known as the “Invisible House,” was designed by American Psycho film producer Chris Hanley and artist and architect Tomas Osinski, who has worked with the likes of Frank Gehry (designer of the Guggenheim Museum).
The 22-story HORIZONTAL structure can be found in the middle of desert. It is almost completely covered in mirrors making it appear like a fallen skyscraper.
It’s located on 90 acres of land bordering Joshua Tree National Park and blends in with its gorgeous surroundings, thanks to its mirrored glass exterior. The house appears almost invisible from other angles. The view changes every day.
The minimalist interior features floor-to ceiling windows and a minimalist design. The sliding doors open to the desert outdoors.
Three suites in the house have king-sized beds, TempurPedic mattresses, and plenty of pillows to sleep six. The guest beds are made of pure marble, while the master suite’s bed frame is made of solid glass. Each bedroom comes with remote-controlled blackout shades.
It includes four bathrooms, each with rain showers and Boffi Rectangolo fixtures.
The living space includes a 100-foot-long indoor heated pool with many seating areas. There’s also multi-colored controllable LED interior lighting that lets you customize the color of the pool and the house.
One end of the pool has a fully-stocked, state-of-the art marble kitchen. It includes a refrigerator, freezer, ovens, and a freezer. It also features dual sinks and an island. The 13-foot dining table can accommodate guests.
Outside, there’s an Arteflame barbeque grill/griddle that turns into a fire pit for the best stargazing experience.
The white wall at the other end is used as a projection screen for films.
One of Hanley’s favorite details about the Invisible House is when the changing light outside integrates with the lights in the pool, which shifts between red, blue, green, violet, and turquoise.
“If you’re swimming or watching the news on TV while you’re swimming, and the lights are changing — that’s a great thrill,” he said.
The all-electric house has a very low carbon footprint and uses the best materials and technologies.
The Invisible House also has a 4,000-foot peak that is home to hiking trails. It also gives direct access to Desert View Conservation Area. It is quiet, but it is only 10 minutes from downtown Joshua Tree. There are many restaurants, coffee shops and yoga studios nearby.
The Invisible House also has its own invisible Dan Armstrong electric guitar. Bose Portable Home speaker can blast music. There’s also a massive 86-inch LG 4K television in the living room with streaming services and Blu-Ray DVD with dozens of recent movies.
According to the Airbnb listing, rates start at about $3,500 per person for eight nights. So if you have that money to splurge on unique accommodations like this one, it’s the perfect time to do so!
