1963-64 Frey House II | Architect: Albert Frey | Palm Springs, CA | Photos: Dan Chavkin & David Glomb
Frey took five years to select the site and a year to measure the movement of the sun using a 10-foot pole. At the time, the home was located on the highest elevation in the city. After reviewing his plans, Palm Springs City Hall called the design “crazy” but finally gave its approval. Glass panels were custom made to fit the rock that were incorporated into the house.
