A joyous occasion unfolded at Desert Horizons Country Club as the much-anticipated grand opening of their brand new clubhouse took center stage at a vibrant gala there Saturday night. At Tesselle, we are proud of the role our Incline White Breeze Block masonry walls played in adding a touch of boldness to this beautiful new building.

The Incline Breeze Blocks, showcased at the front and walk-up of the clubhouse, not only pay homage to the rich history of breeze blocks in the greater Palm Springs region but also introduce a contemporary, bold geometric design pattern. It's a harmonious blend of tradition and modernity, creating a new aesthetic for breeze block enthusiasts.
The architecture and interiors were designed by Melzer Deckert & Ruder Architects, Inc, experts in crafting exquisite clubhouses. The seamless design or indoor and outdoor spaces has resulted in a clubhouse that effortlessly ranks among the most beautiful in the region.

The construction journey, overseen by C,W.

Their commitment to excellence shines through in every corner of this architectural gem.

A crucial part of this journey was the installation of the Incline Breeze Blocks, skillfully executed by Rick Hamm Construction. A family-owned business with decades of experience in concrete and masonry construction trades, they brought precision and expertise to the installation of every block, contributing to the overall allure of the clubhouse.
