Retro Martini Party - February 24, 2017
Once again, the Palm Springs Preservation Foundation's Retro Martini Party fundraiser was one of the highpoints of Modernism Week. The elegant party's 2017 venue was the storied Kirk Douglas Residence in the Old Las Palmas neighborhood. The stunning private residence was designed by the famous modernist architect Donald Wexler and built by Robert Higgins in 1954. Douglas purchased the house in early 1957 and made some minor changes to the house for his family. Notably, the nearby tennis pavilion is still papered with movie posters of his celebrated career. The event highlighted a recent sensitive renovation which uncovered some of the home's original architectural features. Ketel One provided the delicious martinis. (Photos courtesy Lance Gerber)
