Modernist Houses for the Modest Set

Palm Springs, once a winter retreat for Hollywood’s glamorous types, began welcoming the middle class in the 1950s, thanks to the residential developments created by the Alexander Construction Company. Far from cookie-cutter boxes, the houses were designed by forward-looking modernist architects, like William Krisel, Dan Palmer, Donald Wexler and Charles Dubois. Photographs by James Schnepf.
