If you have ever wanted to own a supervillain lair, now is your chance.
For every kid that ever read comic books or watched superhero movies, owning a supervillain lair is probably a pipe dream that died shortly after puberty (how sad, don’t let go of your dreams, people!). However, if you are one of those kids (grown up, with 3 million to throw around) you can revive this lusty dream, as a very real-seeming supervillain lair just hit the California market. Gasping for air? Us too.
Located in Joshua Tree, the fascinating supervillain lair style home was created in the late 80s by artist Beverly Doolittle and her husband Jay. It sits on 10 beautiful acres of nearly-untouched desert, and was created by organic architect Kendrick Bangs Kellogg. The structure is made of concrete, glass, steel, and copper, and is situated in a bed of rocks, designed to look like an architectural ribcage. It’s also perfect for not being found, so, hello celeb lifestyle.

The house is certainly non-traditional architecturally, but it fits well into the surrounding areas and is an example of how modern design can mesh with natural environments to create harmony. Or, it can just scare the living daylights out of your in-laws and remind them that visiting your home isn’t an every day occurrence.via ]
