Own William Krisel's Palm Springs Pod House For $2.5M

Pioneering architect William Krisel's Tipper-Grundt Residence is a futuristic formation of five connected pods.

Iconic architect William Krisel modernized Southern Californian suburban tract housing and helped solidify Palm Springs as a haven for midcentury modern architecture. Known for using post-and-beam construction, expansive walls of glass, and open floor plans, Krisel also popularized the butterfly roof—a personal trademark now synonymous with Californian suburbs.
