Palm Springs Modern Committee: Desert Two Unveiling; Jim Jennings Architect

The Palm Springs Modern Committee invites you to an exclusive unveiling of a remarkable new all-steel home in Deepwell Estates designed by noted modernist architect Jim Jennings.

This first public showing of Desert Two (the second of Jim Jennings' desert projects) will take place from 6-8 pm on Saturday, April 27. Cocktails and light fare will be offered during the reception.

Desert Two is a serene, elegant and exquisitely proportioned steel and glass house that tips its hat to the iconic steel homes designed by Donald Wexler 50 years ago in Palm Springs. Come and meet the architect, Jim Jennings, and learn about this new home.  

Like the Wexler homes, Desert Two was constructed of prefabricated steel wall and roof panels. Blue Sky Building Systems developed the house (the photo of the home above is the Jim Jennings residence, built in 2000, and published in Architectural Digest in 2009).

The reception is a membership-building event for the Palm Springs Modern Committee to help strengthen its vital preservation and advocacy programs.  

Tickets are $15 for Palm Springs Modern Committee members and $20 for non-members.  The link to purchase tickets is HERE.
