Inspired by Joshua Tree's National Park breathtaking vistas, infinite sky, and enigmatic rock formations, we envisioned an architecturally innovative resort to harmonize with this desert panorama. CasaPlutonia redefines the more traditional concept of a retreat by inviting guests to restore themselves in a sanctuary that fosters synergy among spirit, nature, and high design. Inside CasaPlutonia's Euclidean Platonic geometries augment an understanding of the desert’s planar dimensions and provide guests with an opportunity to recover their well-being.
