The broad principles of good design.


Innovation

Cohesion

Authenticity

Attention to Detail

Sustainability


Soetsu, the Japanese philosopher, stated “Make beautiful things. Make things to be used. Eliminate everything that is unnecessary.”


Cohesion Studio fuses design principles into the 21st Century by tapping into 16th Century Follies through undisturbed views and vistas. Interdigitation of principals in design is essential to take the old, the new and fuse into moments, shared by many.


As creators, we implement the above design filters and wield them as tools to bring ideas to life𑁋a life that is engaging, memorable and creates moments that honor the space, environment and the end user experience.

Pulling up to the Folly cabins, their rusty steel facade reads like a pair of abandoned sheds, forgotten by time among the Joshua Tree landscape. But peel back the weathered skin and you'll find a highly livable space. The main cabin is a modest 460 square feet. Its raw plywood interior offers a living space, dining area, kitchen, bathroom, and sleeping mezzanine within its compact shell. A wooden deck with an outdoor soaking tub leads to the second building. Follow the staircase and you'll find the Stargazing Portal. The open-air suite offers pristine views of the night sky, allowing guests to experience the cosmos from a heated queen bed.
