Situated upon nearly 300 acres of untouched terrain, Willow House boasts standalone single-story casitas, completed in the spring of 2019. The lifeblood of the entire property is a water well, driven by a solar pump, with two robust reverse osmosis systems ensuring the pristine quality of the water. The drilling of their own water source marked a pivotal milestone for the project, given the scarcity of water in this arid, high-desert region.

The dimensions and terrain of the land guarantee that the vistas of the Chisos Mountain Range will remain unobstructed by any potential future developments in the vicinity.

Throughout the construction process, the Willow House team relied on three key principles: having utmost respect for the natural landscape, preserving the awe-inspiring Chisos Mountain Range views (a gift to all in the vicinity), and safeguarding against the elements to ensure longevity.

The design artfully interweaves design elements from the high desert regions, exuding a warm modernism that takes subtle inspiration from the iconic Southwestern style of Georgia O'Keeffe. Every design decision was grounded in a reverence for the land, with colors and textures drawn directly from the surrounding environment.
