Forbes: Homes in Unusual Places

Desert Nomad House, Tucson, Arizona

Where to put a contemporary yurt? Rick Joy’s award-winning art-filled Desert Nomad House is secluded on 8.3 acres in the Sonoran desert at the base of the Tucson Mountains. You won’t even need to dress up when walking the gravel paths that link the trio of rusted steel cubes in small, medium and large sizes housing the entertaining, sleeping and working spaces. Each cube has a floor-to-ceiling wall of glass with panoramic desert and mountain views and close-ups of Saguaro cacti. On the market for $875,000, Walter Cecil, its current owner and resident art and rug dealer, calls his home, “a perfect marriage between good modern architecture and a pristine desert environment.”
