— Enveloped by hundreds of square miles of natural scenery, the preserved land is situated on the edge of The Mojave National preserve and Joshua Tree National Park. For thousands of years, roaming tribes occupied what is now known as the Oasis of Mara. The new destination is situated on pristine terrain surrounded by some of the best land conservation in the region. Inspired by the Mojave Desert breathtaking vistas, clear sky, and unique boulder formations, we envisioned an architectural collective that explores the metamorphosis of the original Folly Prototype. Malek has designed every aspect of the property to promote self-reflection and provide guests with a disconnect from everyday life.
The architecture derives from the cultural history and geometry of temples and cultural spaces. The oblique's manifest in a multi-level experience that explores the landscape and vast dark night skies.
Retractable canvas roofs, lounge beds, open bar and secluded and secure open sky spaces allow users to experience the stars from the comforts of the stargazing portals.
The swimming pool and sun lounge deck is where guests can gather to enjoy a cool swim, the coffee bar, small bites, and refreshing drinks with an untouched desert views.
