The Shipwreck Suite is part of Villa Anita DV's ongoing installation on the Mojave desert's tradition of sculptural dwellings. This sculpture is almost solely built using re-purposed materials carrying forward the villa's commitment to zero waste.
We think you'll love the experience. It feels like you've crash landed in Never Land, which is perfect if you've had enough of adulthood for the moment.
The Shipwreck Suite is built with what were once two dinghies. One has it's end anchored in the ground creating the wall, and the other caps the roof in the old Viking style. The roof and floor are insulated with plastic recyclables accumulated here on the property making it a very eco-friendly structure. The toilet is a flushable composter designed by artist David Aaron Smith out of repurposed wood and plumbing parts. You'll be delighted by the lengths we have to go to to give you a unique experience that's comfortable, but wildly out of the box.
Villa Anita is a sprawling art installation that is growing day by day. You are treated to tour the grounds and enter into the minds and hearts of the artists who work on it everyday. Remember, you'll be the last people to see it in it's current stay. It is ever-evolving.
