Home of the Day: A modern marvel in Palm Desert
The Fritz Residence, built of concrete blocks, hand-stacked stone walls and floor-to-ceiling windows, was designed to evoke a sense of both division and openness.
Separate master and guest wings are connected by a communal space that includes open-plan living and dining rooms and a kitchen. Sliding glass doors in each room open to a courtyard with a swimming pool and spa, set off by mountain views.
