Curbed doesn’t usually feature condo or apartment complexes in our House of the Day section, but we’re making an exception for this vibrant two-bedroom, two-bath in Palm Spring’s historic Royal Hawaiian Estates.
Numbering 40 units, Royal Hawaiian Estates was designed by architects Donald Wexler and Richard Harrison in 1962 with a blend of modern and tiki elements. The complex originally boasted seven flying buttresses, rock walls, apex rooflines, and double sunken swimming pools. While the complex fell into disrepair in the 1990s, residents have worked through Modernism Week to fund reconstruction and return the homes to their former glory.
Inside this particular 1,510-square-foot Royal Hawaiian unit, you’ll find clerestory windows, preserved period style baths and kitchen, terrazzo flooring, and walls of glass that open to two different lanais. Each of the bedrooms are decked out in colorful designer wallpaper, and the kitchen is a bright and cheery yellow.
