Carl E. Haymond Residence Tour

Sunday, February 18, 2018

PSPF was proud to make the rarely-seen Carl Haymond Residence available for touring. Constructed in 1964 and designed by the modernist architectural firm of Frey & Chambers, the residence recently underwent an extensive and sensitive restoration. Haymond was a prominent TV and radio station owner in the Pacific northwest, who fell in love with Palm Springs and eventually built his dream home in the Las Palmas Estates tract. The home's most notable architectural feature is the use of cast aluminum grille units to screen out the desert sun. Over 170 of these grille units (designed by architect John deKoven Hill) are used throughout the residence. The home’s carefully curated interior features furniture and objects by a host of important 20th-century designers. Through the efforts of PSPF, and with the enthusiastic support of the owner, the residence was designated a Class 1 Historic Site by the city of Palm Springs. Tourgoers received a full-color reprint of “Into the Frey,” an article about the Haymond Residence that appeared in the September 2017 issue of Palm Springs Life magazine.
