Hollywood Glam in Palm Springs

Sunday, February 15, 2015

Our Hollywood Glam in Palm Springs event was held at one of the most interesting modernist homes in the prestigious Vista Las Palmas neighborhood. Considered by many to have perhaps the best residential pool and bar entertainment space in the city, the Morse Residence (1960) started life as an Alexander tract home designed by the firm of Palmer & Krisel. In 1961, the owners commissioned renowned modernist architect Harold "Hal" Levitt to glamorize and expand the home and turn it into a Hollywood-style "entertainment residence." A portion of the proceeds from this event funded the Class 1 Historic Site nomination for this important modernist residence. (Photos courtesy John Lewis Marshall, Jim Riche and PSPF)
