An eco-chic Marmol Radzinger dwelling in the Moab Desert is an intriguing example of stylish, sustainable design.

In the spectacular red rock desert outside of Moab, Utah, an unobtrusive home basks peacefully on the warm ground like a desert lizard, perfectly at home and seamlessly integrated with its environment. This 2,500 square foot prefab home designed by Marmol Radzinger was created from fifteen separate modules constructed in California with pre-installed solar panels, doors, windows and cabinetry.
The finished sections were then transported and erected on seventy-plus acres of rugged boulder and wildflower dotted land, achieving a new level of indoor/outdoor design synergy. An immediate sensation when it was completed in 2006, the residence’s hip, contemporary beauty is more than skin-deep. Daylighting, energy efficient windows, Energy Star appliances, and the use of sustainable building materials ensure this fabulous hideaway has a featherlight footprint.
A special thank you to Lars Carlson of Telluride Sotheby’s International Realty for making Hidden Valley by Marmol Radzinger available for this editorial feature.
