At Palmilla, an immediate community identity is established through bold colors and angular forms that find harmony with the indigenous desert environment. These paired homes are designed to maximize views of the mountains and neighborhood lakes with plans that promote indoor/outdoor living. Stone and stucco create a strong visual base to contrast copper accents and details. Steel trellises provide another layer of scale and create bold shadow patterns on the ground and wall planes of the courtyard spaces.
