dc.descriptionDetail of support beam for balcony on north facade; California Modernism is used to describe the modernist movement in architecture as it evolved in California, specifically Los Angeles and the area surrounding it, from the 1930s through the 1960s. Hallmarks of this style are attention to indoor-outdoor living, open plans, rectilinear structures often constructed with steel frames, and extensive use of glass. This house embodies that; there is no dining room as dining was done outside. It has an open plan with 2 bedrooms and 2 bathrooms. The living room has a mirrored wall since Miller used it as a studio for her fashionably avant-garde exercise course in posture and grace, "The Mensendieck System." This unique program, combined with the desert landscape and the proactive, health-minded client appealed to the idealist in Neutra. This was the first Modernist house in Palm Springs, according to The Palm Springs Modern Committee.
