Twin Palms Estates

Model A-2
Architect: William Krisel for Palmer & Krisel (1957)
Location: Palm Springs, CA

JR Roberts and Chris Menrad have teamed up to form a business restoring P&K-designed Alexander homes in Palm Springs to their former splendor. This is their first effort, I believe, and it's a beauty! The landscaping is based on plans by William Krisel, himself. In addition to being an architect, Mr. Krisel is a licensed landscape architect and has always emphasized the importance of a cohesive and complimentary design for the landscaping around his homes.

Chris owns another P&K home in the neighborhood, which is also restored. JR owns the famous Edris house. Both are also serving as President and Vice-President of the Palm Springs Modernism Committee. But besides that, they are both very nice guys!
