Mid-century/desert modern houses
Designed by William Krisel (Palmer & Krisel) in the early 1960s for Robert & Helene Alexander of the influential Alexander Construction Co., this luxurious family home was uniquely comprised of 4 floating circular pavilions on three levels under one boomerang shaped roof.
State-of-the-art electronics, which would make The Jetson’s proud, were also installed to control indoor/outdoor lighting, temperature and irrigation.
Located in the Vista Las Palmas neighborhood, The House of Tomorrow was a trend setter at the time for modern living in Southern California.
Regrettably, in 1965, George & Mildred Alexander and their son Robert & his wife, were killed in a tragic plane crash which put an end to their mid-century modern building boom in Palm Springs.
For many years, the House of Tomorrow was better known as Elvis Presley’s Honeymoon Hideaway where he and Priscilla stayed for a short time after they married in 1968, but as of 2022 the iconic home was restored to its former glory and is once again a private residence.
