William Krisel brought unprecedented sophistication to an economical tract development. You will enter three of his detached homes—each customized with a different roofline that transcends tract construction, and each respectfully restored to reflect its original design. You’ll also tour a bungalow at the historic Ocotillo Lodge and two later additions to the neighborhood’s evolving architecture—a unique detached 1962 home developed by Hollywood executive Fred Stein, and a striking condo from the 1970s by Palm Springs architect Laszlo Sandor.
Exclusive to our tour is a museum-quality multimedia exhibit that reveals Mr. Krisel’s innovations and lasting impact on Palm Springs architecture. It features graphic panels, scale-model homes, neighborhood artifacts and a video kiosk.
This year’s tour also features several neighborhood landmarks including our new neighborhood entry sign, the renamed William Krisel Way, and the recent expansion of the Hugh Kaptur-designed Palm Springs Fire Station #4. Vintage cars will enliven your route.
By tour’s end you will appreciate why our neighborhood is a frequent location for social media and print stories, and why its enduring appeal is chronicled in coffee-table books, documentary films, music videos, and countless articles in travel and lifestyle magazines.
Tour proceeds help the Twin Palms Neighborhood Organization preserve and beautify our neighborhood and fund community projects.
