contributed by haveacupoftea

This project is also known as the Elvis Honeymoon Hideaway. The type of architecture is known as mid-century modern. Robert Alexander was a residential developer who built over 2200 houses in the Palm Springs area in the 1950s mostly. He started by hiring his friend and architect William Krisel, principal of Palmer & Krisel, who designed the majority of the so-called 'Alexanders'. Most were variations on one blueprint, with some experiments like this House of Tomorrow that Alexander liked so much he moved in. It's built on three levels with four perfect circles and no square rooms. Krisel focused on affordable, functional, comfortable houses. He designed more than 30000 living units in Southern California and his designs know some revival recently.
