The Rondolino Residence is surrounded by an arid landscape allowing its vibrant architecture to be seen from far away. Located in High Desert near Scotty’s Junction Nevada the bold but simple architecture style of this residential building has influenced the inhabitant’s lifestyle allowing them to live a comfortable modern life while vacationing. Created by Nottoscale the contemporary retreat features 1200 square feet interior living space and 900 square feet exterior deck space.
The red cedar-cladded upper volume slightly cantilevers over the lower pure white volume to offer a small shaded terrace. On top the flat roof provides the inhabitants with the choice of planting different vegetation that will enlarge the total surface of the garden and provide natural insulation while protecting the interiors from solar gain.
The MIMA house consists of a square post-and-beam structure entirely glazed on all sides subdivided by modular 1.5mx3m wooden frames. MIMA houses come with additional plywood panels which can be placed on the inside and the outside of the building for replacing any window by a wall easily.
The ground level is occupied by the kitchen and main living spaces with openness to the outside via floor-to-ceiling windows. Two separate sets of stairs connect the levels but keep a privacy feature by not being directly connected to the living spaces downstairs.
