Ultra-minimal Marmol Radziner home is for sale in the Utah desert

A sleek prefab that beds into the terrain

This steel and glass house, on the market in Utah, was one of the first homes to roll off LA architecture practice Marmol Radziner’s prefab assembly line.

The three-bedroom desert home was originally made in 2005 for an outdoors-loving couple who manufactured mountain bikes. They’d purchased 100-acres of scrubby desert terrain in Moab, and needed a house that could be easily constructed in a remote location, which was dotted with red-rock formations and mesas.

The 4,200 sq ft Utah property – on the market with Telluride Sotheby’s International Realty for $1.9m – was made by hand in Marmol Radziner prefab’s factory, with carpenters, cabinetmakers and steelworkers crafting the individual modules, which were then connected on site.

It wraps around an outdoor pool that’s screened by trees and sagebrushes. Interiors are sparse, with floor to ceiling windows that put the focus on desert views and glimpses of the mountains. Radziner describes the home as a ‘springboard’ for connecting with nature.

Passageway inside 130 Hidden Valley Drive, Moab, Utah. It features built in cabinetry, stone floors and floor to ceiling glass.
