Give Me Shelter  Rescued Alexanders Home Tour

Modernism Week 2020

FRIDAY - FEBRUARY 14, 2020

TOUR TIMES: (1 day only)

12:00 pm, 12:30 pm, 1:00 pm, 1:30 pm


Experience a desert legacy of homes affectionately referred to as “Alexanders”. Working in creative collaboration with designs from notable architects Charles Du Bois, Dan Palmer and William Krisel, George and Bob Alexander’s vision of home construction helped change the landscape of Palm Springs.


Known for their clean lines, streamlined floor plans, expansive windows connecting indoor and outdoor living spaces, and post-and-beam construction, “The Alexanders” represent examples of midcentury modern architecture and design.


Previously overlooked, often disregarded or failed to give proper attention, this collection of “rescued” and tastefully restored Alexander constructed homes are some of Palm Springs finest examples—inside and out!


“Rescued” Alexanders include a home lovingly returned to the original design including new tongue and groove ceilings, a contemporary home of an artist and architect dubbed “Leisureland” for its playful, cool vibe, and a stunningly restored home with three walls of glass wrapping the main living areas where one has the ability to stand in one corner of the lot and see right through the house to the opposite corner of the property offering spectacular views of mountains from dramatic sunrise to sunset. Just to name a few!


Explore Palm Springs on this captivating self-driving tour of stylishly restored homes that pay homage to the original design with a custom flair. Ticket holders are invited to explore both the exterior and interior of this collection.

Rescued not once but twice! Proceeds from the tour of homes will benefit the Friends of the Palm Springs Animal Shelter, a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization, which manages and operates the Palm Springs Animal Shelter supporting over 4,700 rescued, homeless pets annually.
