The John Lautner-designed Elrod House — a Palm Springs landmark built for celebrated interior designer Arthur Elrod — reflects the architect's emphasis on embracing natural landscapes. Nine concrete triangles and clerestories form a radiating canopy over the living room and a pool terrace split by a retractable glass curtain. Native boulders and outcrops are incorporated into the design, furthering the union of home and nature.
