A-frame roofs typify Swiss Miss houses in Palm Springs

A-frame roofs typify Swiss Miss houses in Palm Springs

Chalet-esque houses designed to stand out from their neighbours.

At the hands of builder Joe Dunas and the Alexander Construction company, the Swiss Miss Houses were designed by architect Charles Dubois in the glamorous Palm Springs neighborhood of Vista Las Palmas, home to some of Hollywood's biggest stars in the 1950s.

DuBois designed his collection of Swiss Miss Houses as low-lying, one-storey residences sliced by dramatic A-frame roofs that rise straight from the ground. The pitched frames span the full width of the residence, creating covered porch areas at the entrance and shaded terraces at the rear facing towards the pool.

Think timeless mid-century design, elegant furniture and large panes of glass framing, breathtaking mountain views. It's impossible not to fall in love with this place the moment you step inside - 755 West Crescent.

This Mid-Century Modern gem has been completely reimagined with an eye to living in the lap of luxury. Did you already spot one of our artwork on the wall?
Palm Springs Car is a dreamy travel shot of a cadillac at Palm Springs Tramway Gas Station, designed by architects Albert Frey and Robson Chambers to mark the entrance into the modernist mecca. Since 2003, the Palm Springs Bureau of Tourism has run the building as the Palm Springs Visitors Center.
