Desert Palisades Guardhouse forms a security checkpoint for a residential area under construction in the Californian desert city. The building’s most prominent feature is a large canopy that extends 34 feet (10 meters) over the space where cars stop on their way into the neighbourhood.
The guardhouse includes a sitting area, mailroom and bathroom inside. Connected to the attendant area is a sunlit space with floor-to-ceiling windows, while a break room with a small kitchen and rest area make up the rest of the facilities.
This cantilevered roof designed by Studio AR+D is truly stunning.
