Palm Springs, CA
This contemporary multi-unit condominium complex in Palm Springs includes 3 sets of two story buildings separated into multiple units each with swimming pools, guest houses and vaulted common rooms with steel staircases supported by glass handrails. The complex open floor plans and clerestory windows challenged Taylor & Syfan to frame floor members off of roof members. To keep costs down, the units were framed as a Type V structure using standard lumber with minimal steel columns. Photos courtesy of DesignARC Los Angeles.
