When the Alexander Construction Company came to Palm Springs in 1955, the father and son team had already built housing developments in Los Angeles. Working with several architects, they constructed more than 2,500 homes in Palm Springs and established a modernist style that was imitated throughout the United States. The house shown here is in the Twin Palms development (formerly known as Royal Desert Palms), constructed in 1957.
