This Palm Springs residence was designed and created by Dennis Gibbens of Dennis Gibbens Architects. It is brand new construction and the design embraces the outdoor lifestyle that’s a must-have in Palm Springs. The home will be primarily used as a weekend home, so the homeowners wanted something fairly low maintenance.

Upon arrival, guests enter into a private and enclosed courtyard garden that exudes modernism and reflects the simplicity of desert-living. It’s totally Palm Springs.

The modern feeling continues in the interior of the home with the white terrazzo tile flooring and simple white walls. Each bathroom is fitted with the same tiles, hardware and fixtures for continuity. It feels casual inside, and great for entertaining. The outdoor areas are covered and the glass doors and wall of windows marry the indoors and outdoors. There are two bedroom suites located at opposite ends of the home, joined by the large living/dining space.

The home is part of an exclusive, private neighborhood, whose amenities comprise a tranquil swimming pool, an upscale clubhouse and architecturally-landscaped gardens.
