  1950 E Desert Palms Drive Palm Springs, CA 92262

Active (15 Days)


The William Cody family residence, only recently presented to the public, has quickly become one of the most iconic modern homes in Palm Springs. It is a sculptural expression of architecture, the home was featured in the September issue of Arts and Architecture magazine in 1952. This is a sincere architectural house thats for the true collector of mid-century design. This home served to be the place where Cody would create the framework for his practice and is the epitome of the style he became known for. Slim and delicate minimalist forms, lowly hovering and elongated horizontal statements, this house is the essence of light and space and provides an ever-changing experience of light and shade as the sun moves throughout the day. A number of interconnected glass corridors, provide a completely translucent home that is balanced with organic materiality and texture featuring adobe block walls and ceilings laced in Douglass Fir. Showing off the home engineering, a grid-like pattern of steel posts and supports race through the house almost as though organized by some of the great minimalist artists. The property and home combine gardens and courtyards and an indoor/outdoor experience you have to feel in person to truly appreciate and understand what desert modernism was intended to be.
