Carlos Naude and Whitney Brown form the creative couple that founded Working Holiday Studio, which custom designed “Casa Mami”, their (ecological) design shelter in the middle of the desert, in Pioneertown, California.
Both Carlos and Whitney are people who appreciate design, architecture, and traveling. They lived in New York for five years, but always imagined they’d have a second home near nature. Before becoming parents, they decided to move to Los Angeles, thinking precisely about this proximity and it was during a trip to Joshua Tree that they fell in love with the natural surroundings of the National Park and began searching for the perfect home.
The surroundings of this park are dotted with adobe-made houses in earthy and neutral tones, which are the absolute protagonists in this area, where housing is anchored. There has only been one different element for a time: Casa Mami ecological house (available on Airbnb), 7.5 kilometers away from Pioneertown, a small village built in the 40’s decade, as if representing the setting of a Wild West movie.
