6 Palmer and Krisel Houses in Palm Springs

Architects Palmer and Krisel run one of the most prolific American architecture firms of the 50s and 60s.

In the early 50s, they worked mostly on commercial projects and designed custom homes in the Bel Air and Brentwood neighbourhoods in Los Angeles.

In the following decade, architects Palmer and Krisel established themselves as designers of houses that became synonymous of Mid-century Modern architecture, featuring a unique siting, minimal ornamentation, butterfly roofs and large glass windows. Locations as Palm Springs became the perfect setting for many of their houses, due to the more casual indoor-outdoor living standard. 

Today we have selected six beautiful Palmer and Krisel houses located in the Palm Springs area. Enjoy!
