Acido Dorado: A Golden House with Golden Interiors

You are making it a habit here on homedit to read about a rarity every damn day and we are not in the mood to disappoint you today. Today you get to witness Acido Dorado, a golden house that is a mirage and it is located in the Southern California desert.

Designed by LA-based architect Robert Stone,Acido Dorado features a sloped roof and a tinted glass grid among steel ironwork that distinguishes the house giving it a purely golden look on the sandy landscape. What is great is that the inside of this abstract house is also finished in a simple palatte of white which again shimmers in the golden hues. A large heart figure set into the glass at the front endorses this house with a rare stamp.

It’s a very beautiful and modern house. It has a very nice design, both in terms of exterior design as well as of interior décor. Every room as specific look, a different atmosphere and décor. But what they all share in common is the modern and simple style. It’s nice how all the materials and patterns work together and form a complete and equilibrated image. And all the different colors also work together to form complementary and colorful images.  It’s a beautiful design, modern and elegant and also stylish

It’s an interesting idea, to build a house where everything is yellow. But considering the location I would say it’s a great way to camouflage it. This way it blends very well with the surroundings.
