Would you like to live in a newly-constructed version of this home? A butterfly house by architects William Krisel and Dan Palmer?
Well, you can!
Maxx Livingstone are building brand new versions of these homes from the original Krisel & Palmer plans, as executed by Alexander Construction, which gave these quintessential Palm Springs homes their name. Krisel – now 83 – worked with the developers, making modifications to the original designs so they better serve 21st century needs.
So far, 4 have been finished in Palm Springs. But the developers are flexible. They’ll work up a version to fit your lot in St. Louis. They even created a pre-fab version.
Best of all for the land and your energy bills, they are retaining the original 1,625 s.f. floor plan. I love that they’ve resurrected a proven mid-century modern design, and that the people who buy into this will also buy into living responsibly in high style. It’s a small step toward breaking the outrageous square footage addiction; like hiding the horse pill in a spoonful of peanut butter, so to speak.
