why palm springs?

Beneath the shadow of the San Jacinto Mountains sprawls the California desert—home to captivating sunsets and a vibrant landscape, the desert plays host to a little city known as Palm Springs. Contrasting the rugged scenery, the town has gained increasing notoriety as a haven of Midcentury Modern architecture. With retro hues, a history with Hollywood’s elite and entire neighborhoods of anything-butordinary-rooflines, the town has certainly earned its place as an icon. Boasting numerous preservation groups and multiple events celebrating all things mid mod (including Modernism Week), it is safe to say that Palm Springs won’t be losing its incredibly strong connection to and deep respect for midcentury architecture. With all this in mind, we chose to celebrate the vibrant design history this town has to offer. No matter if you are an…

The Aguilar home in Canton, Ohio For Rhonda and Ken Aguilar, it was love at first Google between them and their 1959 brick ranch. Rhonda explains, “We fell in love with the interior photos of the spacious floor plan and the great windows when house hunting online.” Those windows include original ones, clerestory windows that open and picture windows along the front façade. Other highlights include “a large L-shaped living/dining room and a family room with a charcoal grill and fume hood”— plus the discovery “that the architects for the home were Cox & Forsythe, who were best known as the architects for the Pro Football Hall of Fame in Canton, Ohio.” The Valade home in Kailua, Hawaii It was a journey for both the Valade family and the previous owners.

switch in focus

Upon purchasing our Midcentury Modern home, my wife Tina and I maintained a goal to keep the character as original as possible. “I have never heard of anyone who likes lighting from that time period, you need to come to my warehouse. I have pallets of new old stock lighting from the ’60s and ’70s.” As we made minor cosmetic changes, we determined that we needed a light switch at the bottom of our staircase. We didn’t want to lose the feel from the rest of the home’s unique porcelain-based light switches—which were made in Switzerland—so the hunt began. Not finding a good source online, our hunt extended to a local search. Fortunately, our home’s breaker box had the original electric contractor’s name on the door and included their address from 1963. I…

WHEN THE OWNERS OF THIS HOME PURCHASED IT, the 1930s Streamline Moderne space was in serious need of a loving update. Wanting to maintain the character of the designated heritage house while creating an open space that met their needs, the family worked with the architectural firms of dpai architecture inc. and Toms + McNally Design to use the home’s rounded form as the springboard for a full renovation that’s Streamline Moderne meets Midcentury Modern. “The renovation respects the original character and detailing of the designated heritage house while celebrating its contemporary spirit with a bold addition,” says Petra Matar, an intern architect with dpai who worked on this project. The project, which more than doubled the size of the home (adding 1,250 square feet to the home’s original 1,200 square feet),…
