Had Imperial stormtroopers decided to makeover Uncle Owen’s Tatooine home, instead of evicting him and his old lady in the harshest way possible, Luke Skywalker might have still been chilling in a home like this, the Desert House by architect Kendrick Bangs Kellogg.

Just a stone’s throw from Joshua Tree National Park, the Desert House stuns with its array of cast-concrete slabs that cover the home in a way that’s both ancient and futuristic all at once. It took about a decade for Kellogg and designer John Vurgin to complete after they were commissioned by artist Bev Doolittle and her husband to create something spectacularly unique. From the parasol in the dining room made of some 800 pieces of sandblasted glass to the master bedroom’s self-standing bronze washing basin, the Desert House is a piece of art that doubles as a home. And because of that, it costs a cool $3 million.
