Abe & Marion Schwartz Residence Tour


Sunday, February 19, 2017

On a lovely Palm Springs afternoon, several hundred eager tourgoers visited the Abe & Marion Schwartz Residence (1964, attributed to Hollywood architect Harold "Hal" Levitt). A particularly exuberant example of modernist architecture, the residence is striking with its isosceles trapezoidal piers covered in quartzite. The interior, beautifully decorated with period-appropriate furniture, features many original elements including an airy interior atrium. On display was Levitt's signature multi-level design and a stunning floating fireplace with vintage tiles. In 2016, the Schwartz Residence was nominated by PSPF to become a Class 1 Historic Site in the city of Palm Springs. (Photos courtesy Mood Creative)
