The Desert Wave Complex, with the historic Miles C. Bates House as its anchor, will be a collection of discrete buildings interspersed within a newly-planted native landscape. Working with the Cactus Store, a neighbor of ours in Echo Park, and the Mojave Desert Land Trust, we’ve re-designed the Bates House landscaping to honor Walter White’s desire for seamless indoor-outdoor transitions, while improving the site’s overall sustainability through water conservation and pollinator support. A new pool, based on White’s original design for the property but never executed when the house was constructed, will be completed in Phase II of the project.

The project represents a new kind of hospitality environment—a micro-boutique hotel that celebrates regional history, culture, and mid-century design—that will be available for select events, artist residencies and group stays.  Two new structures will add 1400 SF and include two guest suites, a commercial kitchen for popup meals, a shared pool and spa, and an event pavilion. We’ve developed, designed, and will operate the Complex after it opens, treating it as a living, evolving environment—one that speaks to the original Miles Bates House’s role in the creative salon culture of Palm Springs-Palm Desert in its mid-century heyday.
