Palm Springs Life
has partnered with the Kappe family, Sean Lockyer and Desert Palisades, to bring these homes to the public eye. Enjoy this virtual tour of both homes from the comfort of your home, before you visit the homes in person or while you’re touring through the homes in person. Narrated by Finn Kappe and Sean Lockyer, our Desert Modernism: Two Perspectives virtual tour will provide insight, detail, and nuance to the in-person tour.

Raymond  Kappe was a master architect who built some of the most revered homes and structures in modern design. The completion of this home in 2021 will undoubtedly realize one of the most significant architectural events to happen in Palm Springs in several decades.

Sean Lockyer, AIA, AIBC is the founding principal and lead architect for Studio AR&D architects. Sean’s direction of the firm has always been one that speaks to the craft and alliance between both architecture and the landscape.

About the Kappe House: Sited in Desert Palisades on the stunning Chino Canyon alluvial fan, this boulder-strewn desert landscape is a perfect framework for desert architecture. The home site commands incredible views of the steep and jagged escarpment of Chino Canyon, with long vistas of the desert floor cased by the San Jacinto, Santa Rosa and Chocolate mountains in three alternating directions. The natural setting provides an optimal environment for Kappe’s site specific desert modern design.

About Lockyer’s Lot 50 House:
Desert Palisades Lot 50 designed by Sean Lockyer brings to life the simple beauty of the desert while taking advantage of the vista. At once it is an elegant retreat and a nod to the modernist masters.  


The organizer of this program is Palm Springs Life. This program is streaming through May 31, 2021.
