If you look at it from just the right angle this entire house blends in so well that it completely disappears, making it easy to understand why it’s been dubbed The Invisible House. This was a project developed film producer Christ Hanley and architect Tomas Osinsk. The house is situated near Joshua Tree National Park in Los Angeles and has a total surface area of 5,500 sq ft (511 square meters).
The Invisible House was built with a steel frame and was clad entirely in mirrored, tempered glass panels, the kids that are usually used on skyscrapers. In fact, it even looks like a skyscraper on its side when viewed from a distance. The mirrored exterior makes it possible for the house to blend in so well with its desert surroundings and to even go completely unnoticed.
It’s been designed as a long and narrow volume, elevated above ground on concrete cylinders and cantilevered on one side. Inside it’s been treated as a large and continuous space with smooth and seamless transitions between the different areas. It’s divided into spacious social areas dispersed around a 30-meter long swimming pool with multiple seating areas that take advantage of the magnificent views. The rest of the floor plan is divided into four bedroom suites. There’s quite a number of glass furniture pieces inside, including a glass bed frame. They add cohesiveness to the decor and add a light and airy touch to the interior as a whole.
