One of our fave Mid Century Modern architects is Donald Wexler, who was hugely influential in creating the classic Palm Springs look in the homes he designed. He is known for pioneering the use of steel in residential architecture, and in 1962, he designed the all-steel Alexander houses.
In 1967, Wexler designed the fabulous “Style in Steel” house located in Buena Park, California, and featured here in these brilliant photos by Julius Shulman.
A Modern Bear favorite! This dramatic 1959 MCM residence was designed and built by Rodney Walker for his own home.
Located on an extremely private property in the east end of Ojai, California, its stunning modern design includes 25 foot wooden ceilings, floor to ceiling glass, polished cement floors and an open floor plan. This 4,300 square foot four bedroom, three bathroom home sits on 3.4 acres, featuring lush Japanese gardens with water features, wrap-around redwood decks, pathways and bridges. Walker was a modern designer and builder who specialized in residential architecture in the Southern California area. He contributed three designs to Arts & Architecture magazine’s Case Study House program during the late 1940’s (Case Study House #16, #17, and #18). Many of his homes were photographed by Julius Shulman for Arts & Architecture magazine.
