Kendrick Bangs Kellog High Desert House and Hästens

     Artists Jay and Bev Dolittle are said 
   to have sent a note to architect Kendricks Bangs Kellog to say that they had bought an unusual building site in the Mojave Desert, California in the Joshua Tree National Park. 

The result is the the 
High Desert House also 
called the Dolittle House. 

The Stone Henge of a home is built 
on 26 concrete columns designed 
by the innovator of organic architecture
 Kendricks Bangs Kellog.

 The interior designer John Vugrin has 
been working with the house interior since 
the first note in 1986 and continued 
to  complete the interior of this 
remarkable bespoke unique desert home. 

John Vugrin and Swedish
 Hästens has together with the 
 Dolittles created a 
bespoke round bed that 
really seems to be a 
better fit than a square 
one in this organic home. 

The brief Dolittle has given
 the Hästens bed is going to be used more
 as a sofa and would have looked better in this photo 
if it was styled to fit in instead 
of the blue and white Hästens fabric.  

"The idea was the house would be settled in the landscape. 
Like it was crouching 
on the rocks, 
maybe like an 
animal at sleep"

36 000 000 peolpe all over the world 🌎 has died of AIDS related illnesses all since the first reports over 40 years ago. Did you know that ? 

38 000 000 [million] humans are living with HIV today around the globe. 

I have lived with the threat of HIV | AIDS since I first came out and afraid tried to figure out who I was as a teenager. I do not recommend sexually transmitted epidemics when you are in a coming out process. I felt noone understood me. Today in the year of the pandemic maybe there is less social injustice regarding minorities in the midst of a pandemic..? 

Still HIV negative myself but have so many friends that have died through the years that I miss and many close friends that have survived and have lived with HIV since the 80’s and are just fine today.

In countries where the proper medicins are provided the fight against HIV continues. In countries where homosexuality is against the law you can imagine the HIV protection system. 

Do you feel you better understand and have empathy for fellow humans that are infected with virus since the world 🌍 epidemic of Covid-19?
