Renovation of a Palm Springs vacation rental and winter retreat for a Chicago-based client. The original 1,800 sq.ft. house was designed in 1946 by renowned architect Albert Frey. Our mission was to create a fantasy getaway for vacation renters and the client to feel as if they were transported back to another place and time. To achieve this, vintage furniture and colorful artwork were added to create a bright and futuristic environment. Furniture groupings were placed near large expanses of glass to direct views to the San Jacinto Mountains. As the project progressed, the client expressed a need for future expansion, so we proposed a covered outdoor entertaining area to connect the existing home to a new casita. Respecting Albert Frey's aesthetic, we studied his Palm Springs architecture and incorporated similar forms, materials and details into the new structures.
