Jeremy Levine’s ‘Cowboy Modern’ Home In The California Desert
The Cowboy Modern Desert Eco-Retreat is architect Jeremy Levine's sustainable home, fully in sync with its natural California landscape


Nestled within desert flora and rocky hills, the Cowboy Modern Desert Eco-Retreat is architect Jeremy Levine's personal getaway – an extraordinairy escape that is stylish and entirely off-grid property with no water, sewer, or mobile service. Dramatic as this might seem, this sustainable home is as visually and technologically sophisticated as they come, featuring sleek contemporary forms and eco-friendly systems.

Set in Southern California’s Mojave Desert near Pioneertown and Joshua Tree National Park, the two-bedroom residence is surrounded by mesas and low desert vegetation. Inspired by this beautiful natural landscape, the architect composed a home that acts as a flagship for sustainable living, both in terms of its building methods and its connection with its surroundings.
