The ultimate mid-century modern Palm Springs retreat designed by Donald Wexler in 1957.
What you see today is a meticulous recreation of Wexler's original, stripped of unsightly additions. Working from his plans, the last owners restored its openness and clean lines, while upgrading the kitchen and bathrooms. They kept the white terrazzo floor that shimmers in the diffused sunlight, and the mirrored closets that double the apparent size of the bedrooms at front and back. The warm tone of Douglas fir ceilings complements the white walls, and exposed joists create a strong sense of axiality. Luis Ortega furnished the interiors and outdoor living room to subtly enhance the architecture. Marcello Villano created a drought-resistant landscape in the stepped pool court to the south, and the tightly enclosed space to the north, where you are lulled by the cooling murmur of a fountain. Ficus hedges grow over the white-washed bricks, and wooden spider-legs support a canopy over the walkway to the entrance.
