Midcentury Modern Homes in Palm Springs

Unleashing their endless font of creative freedom, these leading architects gave Modernism a new voice with each and every freshly-designed Palm Springs home. Built by celebrated Californian architects like John Lautner, Albert Frey, and Richard Neutra, many of the mid-century modern homes for sale in Palm Springs were designed in response to the bright and arid climate of the Coachella Valley and enjoy the shade that is cast by the looming and awe-inspiring shaded verandahs.

The custom-designed homes of Palm Springs are almost as famous as the people who have resided or have been guests, in them. Homes, such as the Elrod House, were featured heavily in films such as the stylish spy classic, James Bond—Diamonds Are Forever. It’s little wonder why, considering the home’s most prominent feature, a conical, sun-shaped roof that towers over the main living area.

Homes by Richard Neutra

The famous Bauhaus architect was born and educated in Europe and is most well-known for the dramatic juxtaposition between his glass and steel structures and the rugged landscape of the Californian desert. The properties built by this world-class designer are now being preserved and restored by The Neutra Practice. Some of his most famous homes in Palm Springs include:

The Kauffman Desert House

Grace Lewis Miller’s House

Homes by Albert Frey

Prior to moving to the United States and becoming a resident of Palm Springs, Albert Frey lived in Switzerland and worked for Cubist pioneer, Le Corbusier. It was Frey’s designs that kick-started the Desert Modernist movement, many of which had a simplistic and modern ambiance to their design. Some of Albert Frey’s most famous homes and buildings in Palm Springs include:

Tramway Valley Station

Frey House II

Palm Springs Visitor’s Center

Homes by John Lautner

Born in Michigan, Lautner cut his teeth working with the great American architect, Frank Lloyd Wright for six years prior to going out on his own and creating his own firm in LA. Best known for incorporating natural elements into his homes, John Lautner built homes for many starlets. Some of his most famous include:

The Arthur Elrod House

The Bob and Delores Hope House

Homes by Lloyd Wright

The son of the architect who brought Fallingwater to life, Lloyd Wright originally trained in landscape design under the Olmsted brother and went on to design the Oasis Hotel, which is an eye-catching Art Deco building that features a distinctive 40-foot tower.
