The Newton Bass residence in Apple Valley, California, designed by architect Francisco Artigas and photographed in 1960. Bass began developing the Mojave Desert resort community of Apple Valley in the 1950’s. His projects included the popular Apple Valley Inn. Artigas took as much advantage as possible of native materials using stones found right on the hillside to create a dramatic fireplace wall. The Lounge Chairs and Ottomans are upholstered in a terra-cotta fabric set off by silver legs.
