Raymond Loewy Residence ( 1946, Albert Frey)
600 W Panorama Road, Palm Springs
Design legend Raymond Loewy lived in a brilliantly creative desert villa nestled among the boulders in the neighborhood of Little Tuscany. Built as a bachelor retreat and designed by desert modernist architect Albert Frey ( and later enlarged after Loewy got married to accommodate his wife and daughter) the house has been meticulously restored. Floor- to- ceiling glass provides impressive views of the surrounding desert and mountains, while the backyard pool extends into the living room for a true indoor/ outdoor living experience. Though the house may be relatively small in size, the innovative design and layout create a substantial impact.
