Situated in Coachella Valley in California, Four Eyes House’ is the one of the latest projects designed by Edward Ogosta Architecture. It is a weekend desert residence for a family and their dog, the Four Eyes House is an exercise in site-specific experiential programming. Rather than planning the house according to a domestic functional program, the building was designed foremost as an instrument for intensifying a number of onsite phenomenal events. As the name suggests, the structure consists of four ‘sleeping towers’  which have been planned to experience four different mystical views of this desert: morning sunrise to the east, mountain range to the south, evening city lights to the west, and night-time stars overhead. These bedrooms are equally-sized and unassigned, such that the family’s sleeping locations can be rotated based on each individual’s desired viewing experience. Vertical circulation within the towers is similarly particularized (e.g. ladders, spiral stair, switchback stair, or shallow-riser stair). Ground-floor common spaces form a loose connective field between the discrete tower volumes, and offer a more permeable relationship to the landscape.
