Yankee Barn Homes Does Desert Modernism: The Palm Springs

A Los Angeles client recently came to Yankee Barn Homes with a challenge: build a unique house blending the handmade qualities and traditions of post and beam with materials which included stucco, steel, timber, poured concrete, stainless steel, and plenty of glass allowing for an abundance of light. Wow….! This is “thinking outside the box”, and we love it. If it includes timbers (or even if it doesn’t), we can do it! We call it The Palm Springs as this name captures the glamor, sophistication and flair of mid-century architecture. It is ground zero for Desert Modernism, a.k.a, the Mecca of modernism. This house follows in that tradition, new but old, utilizing the concept of the indoor/outdoor house, which blurs the boundaries between inside and the out of doors. barn homes
