Steven's Residence - Palm Springs, CA

1,025 SF Mid-Century guest house completed in 2006

The owners of the main house situated on this small lot desired a guest house that was compatible in scale to the main house while attempting to modernize the architecture upon entry to the site without overwhelming the primary residence. For this reason we chose the mid-century style popular in Palm Springs as our basis. Because of the severe limitation on the site for the guesthouse, (three sides on setbacks), the exterior shape was dictated by the trapezoidal lot and was by default, the welcoming vision to visitors. We chose to keep the guesthouse light and airy as the smaller welcoming structure, and recommended changes to the entry procession of the main house to tie the two structures together. We were very successful in the sensitive site design of the house and resolving the complex compatibility issues being faced.
