Architect: Bassenian Lagoni
Builder: Beazer Homes
Interior Designer: Triomphe Design
Palm Springs home buyers value the unique architectural character of their desert oasis and demand that a new home community honor the town’s design heritage. Creating homes that interpret the mid-century modern vernacular in a way that adapts to a production environment requires finesse from the architect and great execution from the builder, not to mention the approval of the city and buy-in from a highly vocal and knowledgeable citizenry.
To deliver the required authenticity, these plans stayed true to must-have design details of mid-century modern homes:
- Flat planes: The geometric lines of the house are regular and rigorous, with the gabled roof common to modern ranch-style houses.
- Large windows: Sliding-glass doors and other expansive panes of glass allow light to enter rooms from multiple angles.
- Changes in elevation: Small steps between rooms create split-level spaces. A mid-century modern might have partial walls, or cabinets of varying heights to create different depths in the space.
- Integration with nature: Rooms have multiple outdoor views, or multiple access points, encouraging an appreciation of healthy living.
