This Palm Springs condo is one of 30 units in the Park Imperial South community, built in 1961 and designed by Barry Berkus. Over the course of his long career, the architect oversaw production of around 600,000 mass-produced residences across the United States.

This particular development, like many others in Palm Springs, is a masterful marriage of reproducible construction techniques and modern style. The homes are designed with wavy folded fan-style rooflines, clerestory windows, and walls of white concrete.

It features an open floor plan that joins the living room, dining room, and kitchen areas. Other highlights of the interior include terrazzo and cork floors, walls of windows, a breakfast counter and festive orange range hood in the kitchen, and plenty of outdoor access points.
