Mid-Century Architecture For The 21st Century

It seems that Mid-Century Modern architecture is making a nostalgic comeback if a couple of recent construction projects are any indicator.  Just outside of Phoenix, Shea Homes Arizona is currently building and selling six new MCM design models that emphasize the Mid-Century aesthetic of clean lines and indoor/outdoor living coupled with 21st Century amenities that include secret rooms, separate loft areas, and even an option for a detached casita that can serve as a studio, office, or guest quarters.

A little closer to home, Palm Springs Modern Homes has a brand new development in the works that will feature 18 single-family Modernist homes with Mid-Century lines and sensibilities.  Dubbed 18@TwinPalms, the homes will feature Eichleresque details that include an open floor plan, indoor/outdoor style, and clerestory windows.  This classic MCM attitude is updated with wiring for all of today’s necessities, automated blinds, modern energy efficiency, and even wiring for a car charging station.

Palm Springs, as I mentioned in a previous blog, is also home to the hottest new development in the Eichler world – the first ever Desert Eichler, which made its debut last week during Palm Springs Modernism Week.  The developer, KUD Development has plans for more Eichler homes, which will be constructed using authentic, licensed plans created by Claude Oakland and Anshen+Allen.

It is exciting to watch the best of the 1950s and ‘60s being brought into contemporary times.  As they say, “good design is timeless”.
