Frey II by Albert Frey – Palm Springs, California, 1963. Nestled in the San Jacinto mountainside, overlooking the resort town of Palm Springs. This house simply put is a masterpiece. A place for everything and everything in its place.
Frey spent years studying the movement of the sun and the terrain before construction. Designed to blend with the rough desert landscape and almost disappearing among the rocks, this desert oasis captured our heart the moment we saw it, many years ago. It was a privilege to be able to step foot in this home, let alone do a photoshoot there. It seemed only fitting that we shot our new Summer range, Canyons.
Frey lived in this house until his death in 1998. Now owned by the Palm Springs Art Museum, it is rarely open to the public. An exquisite piece of Desert Modernism. The unity between the natural & the man-made is exemplified in this timeless home.
