When Andy Linsky, a realtor specializing in mid-century homes, and his partner Michael Thomas, set out to build a home of their own, they enlisted architect Ana Escalante to realize their vision. After seeing just one project by the architect, the duo knew Escalante would be adept at creating a home worthy of the pedigreed surroundings in Palm Springs, California.

Yet, seamlessly concealed passive design strategies signify the structure’s contemporary roots.
