Frey House II

After looking up at the mountains for 25 years, in 1963 -64 Albert Frey built what was once the highest elevated home in Palm Springs (a feat. to later be taken by the Bob Hope house by John Lautner). The house was only 800 square feet, the design precedence being to emulate the compact nature of a ship, including built-in seating, cabinets, drafting/dining surface and bed unit. Along with the use of materials and passive systems, the house was also famous for the large boulder built into the bedroom.
