This House is the former home of internationally acclaimed artist Andrea Zittel, situated on a sprawling 80-acre compound (A-Z West) filled with site-specific artworks and direct access to Joshua Tree National Park. A-Z West is an evolving testing ground for living—a place in which spaces, objects, and acts of living all intertwine into a single ongoing investigation into what it means to exist and participate in our culture today. Recently Featured in Travel & Leisure Magazine, April 2023 Since the early 1990s, Andrea Zittel has used the arena of day-to-day life to create sculptures and living situations that challenge typical notions of “how to live.” Within her house, Andrea used herself as a self-proclaimed human guinea pig in countless artworks that tested the boundaries of living. The outcomes of these experiments can be found in the house’s various spaces, objects and systems, all of which have been prototyped and reworked countless times before being collectively preserved as a complete artwork. Nearly every inch of the house has been customized or touched by Zittel with purpose and consideration. At the end of 2021, Andrea moved off A-Z West and her house is now available for private stays.

Staff is often available to guide visitors through the site, sharing their extensive knowledge of Andrea’s artworks, as well as their deep understanding of our high desert region. Visitors will experience the Mojave Desert holistically, providing greater insight and fostering meaningful connections with this amazing place. -OUTDOOR SPACE- The three distinct outdoor areas are intentionally integrated into the natural desert landscape. The front patio features sunken-style benches that look out onto Joshua Tree. These conversation pits are perfect for small gatherings or simply enjoying the sunset, positioned just right, facing west. The enclosed yard on the east side of the house is outfitted with lounge furniture, a small soaking tub (available in Aug), outdoor bed and shower. The third patio, between the house and the boulders, offers a propane fire pit, and seating under the shade of a palo verde tree, and stairs leading up the hill onto the trails behind Andrea’s house. The house is surrounded by native plants, inviting a range of daily wildlife visitors.
