Full Details

After walking through the dark brown entry gate, a crumbling wood privacy wall, and ornate etched glass double doors, local musicians Joan and Gary Gand, of the Gand Band, could tell that something special lurked beneath.

Although the home was hidden in Santa Fe Pueblo decor and Western art, it couldn’t quite hide the structure’s original intent.

Instead, they saw a home, almost Miesean in simplicity, a space of rigid structure combined with glorious transparency. High ceilings, a spacious floor plan, stunning desert gardens, walls of glass and an Omnimax view of the mountains from the sunken bar were the highlights that sealed the deal.  

Having acquired vast experience in restoration in other architecturally significant homes in Palm Springs, this became the Gand's new project.

A journey which would ultimately uncover a desert gem of Late Modernism. And so began an extensive restoration of the exterior and a reimagining of the interior reflecting a groovy early 1970s vibe.

PS ModCom invites you to see the new incarnation of the house. This will be the very first tour of the Gand’s latest gem located in the Vista Las Palmas neighborhood. 

The Palm Springs Modern Committee (PS ModCom) is a non-profit organization dedicated to the appreciation and preservation of Desert Modern architecture and design.

The last tour of the day celebrates the era of the house with a Sunset Cocktail Reception and live performance by the Gand Band and their guests. Join us for a 70s vibe and Let’s Groove on Down!

$40, $125 (includes hors d’oeuvres + cocktails, live music)
