Beadle House / Al Beadle + Lance O’Donnell


Modernism Week, Palm Springs’ annual toast to mid century modern architecture and design, is in full swing, and this time around, the desert city so filled with mid century gems already has got a fresh pair of houses for visitors to tour. One of the them is designed by none other than Al Beadle, the Phoenix architect who brought his trademark steel-and-glass style to desert modernism.

The new Beadle House, realised by local architect Lance O’Donnell in collaboration with the Beadle Archives and Beadle collaborators, was created based on never-before-built plans of a ‘70s Beadle design originally intended for Paradise Valley, Arizona. Located at the foot of the San Jacinto Mountains, the structure comprises a compact base with a second level that cantilevers 4m out in every direction. Expansive glass walls, of course, frame stunning views of the surrounding desert landscape — via Curbed
