Montello Foundation

Nevada, USA

The Montello Foundation is a residency program for contemporary artists in the desert of northeast Nevada. The program offers each artist the privilege of solitary residence in the barren desert landscape for a brief period to reflect on the natural surroundings and to create new work in this exceptional environment. The project is a small off the grid complex that provides simultaneous immersion in and protection from the extreme landscape. Two simple structures, made of precast concrete and corrugated aluminum siding, house living quarters and a work studio and are connected at the roof by a screened canopy that houses solar panels and a water catchment system and at the ground by and reclaimed timber deck.
