ZENYARA ESTATE: YOU HAD TO BE THERE
Music and fashion have always been at the forefront of the Coachellamusic festival. Nineteen years since the start of this festival attended by a quarter of a million guests it’s no surprise that luxury accommodations have become another need attendees are seeking out.
This year the 37-acre Zenyara Estate hosted several events surrounding the main festival. Interior designer Dorothy Willetts, architect Gregory J. Smith, Mark Bradshaw, and landscape architect Anne Attinger all contribute to the design of this Palm Springs oasis.
Taking up residence at the opulent Zenyara Estate in the Coachella Valley, adidas SportClub represented the brand’s Creators Unitementality, bridging the diverse worlds of sport and culture through groundbreaking experiences and unifying programming. adidas Originals united the best in sports and culture with adidas SportClub, a modern day revival of Adi Dassler’s original Sport Hotel. The hub was the premier destination over the weekend congregating top athletes and creators in the spirit of collaboration and community elevation.
Zenyara consists of Eleven bedrooms, State of the art Gym, spa, floor to ceiling windows, private sun decks, outdoor gathering spaces with stunning views of the dessert, a white-sand beach-like lake that gives you the feel of a private island and seamless indoor-outdoor living. The price tag for a space this size is estimated to run around $350k a weekend.
“Essentially, the team created “an island in the desert,” says Willetts, a place that now holds its own fascinating mythology. The fundamental vernacular was Indonesian. “It’s meant to evoke the fabled sea serpent at Tanah Lot Temple in Bali,” explains Smith, but the home was meant for modern recre-ation. Achieving the desired aesthetic in the middle of an arid valley required great subtlety to prevent the complex from appearing completely out of place. Willetts knew there could be no lush palm-frond patterns or bright, beachy colors. Rather, she explains, “everything had to be very textural and earthy, very elemental and contemplative, to convey an island-inspired luxury destination home with South Pacific and Caribbean influences.” Click here for more on this space Worth Seeing a over and over again.
