Never before toured during Modernism Week, this unique custom home was designed by architect Harold (Hal) Lacy in 1978 in Canyon Country Club. As you approach the house you will encounter an asymmetrically designed front landscape from street level that takes you to a bridge, which is suspended over an interior atrium to reach the front door. Inside, a greenhouse-like array of glass boldly, but with total privacy, allows light and mountain views to pour in. The home continues to delight with an open plan that contains dramatic volumes and level changes that define a formal living room, den and kitchen and then leads outdoors to a patio and swimming pool sunken below golf course grade to afford further privacy. An architectural experience that provides both period authenticity and a unique relationship to its topography, this house is one-of-a-kind!
The event will include a brief talk about the house and a self-guided tour of the home’s interior. Each attendee will receive a copy of the popular 74-page Palm Springs Preservation Foundation publication Architecture 100.
The Friends of the Palm Springs Library is a non-profit organization established in 1971 that supports the Library through grants for specific events and equipment, and builds awareness within the community for the Library and its functions.
