On a site of undisturbed native vegetation, the desert retreat designed by San Francisco architect Jim Jennings for himself is defined by an 8-foot-high concrete wall that supports a steel roof structure and encloses two courtyards. Unlike the traditional post-and-beam model where glass expanses blur the boundary between landscape and building, this house is about the walled enclosure marking the building as volume and mass.
