The Inn at the Ruin
Joshua Tree, CA
For The Inn at The Ruin—an adjacent complex of pavilions and community space to The Ruin Venue, Studio Vlock has designed a series of corten steel gates and courtyard screens. These are part of the 'Desert Dream’ collection, including the Fireball at The Ruin Venue.
Using contemporary architectural design elements to define exterior spaces throughout the property, these steel gates and screens tell a story; knitting together in one cohesive thread The Ruin Venue and now the adjacent Inn at the Ruin through a shared narrative, connecting guests to the magical world of the desert environment. Together, art and architecture contribute to the branding of The Inn at the Ruin and create an integral place-making experience of the High Desert; engaging people through the power of storytelling.
