Gilbert-Kivett Residence
(# 112)
Images Description Credits
Originally designed by Charles Dubois with a simple gabled roof originally in the ‘Atomic Ranch’ style, the existing 2,800 SF one-story residence in Palm Springs is completely remodeled with new finish materials, fixtures, equipment, and minor flow changes to enhance the interior/exterior connections of the site. The site improvements included expanding the pool, enlarging the spa, a new bocce ball court, a pool room and a new entry sequence that visually opens the house up to the street. Linking the existing residence with the exterior spaces was achieved by layering the property from west to east with walls, landscaping, water features and hardscape elements that unify the site as you move through it. The existing exterior walls were opened up to weave the exterior and interior spaces together. Large-format terrazzo tiles, vertical-grain Douglas fir cabinetry and colorful Heath tiles provide a consistent palette throughout the interiors.
