Palm Spring is synonymous with mid-century designs. Although it was built in the present, the Palm Springs Desert House still exudes what we love from the past. The home is guarded by an eight-foot concrete wall. Within the border is a private courtyard with a pool. While the interior is modest, this protected area creates an indoor/outdoor living experience that nearly quadruples the internal square footage. Large expanses of glazing between the steel frames draw in the views of the surrounding mountains while seamlessly connecting the inside to the exterior patio. Washed in white, the clean lines and minimalist offerings of the modern structure pop against the desert landscape.
