Architectural design practice Hundred Mile House, have renovated and added an addition to a custom-built post and beam mid-century ranch house built in 1954 at the base of San Jacinto Mountain in Palm Springs, California.

Here’s a glimpse of what the original house looked like before and during the renovation. Unfortunately the original architect is unknown.

The material palette used for the house has been inspired by the desert. On the exterior of the house sand-colored stucco is paired with wood elements and a rusted steel fence.

Behind the fence is a courtyard with desert landscaping and steps leading up to the front door.

Inside the front door, there’s a small foyer with a large piece of art hanging on the wall. The original concrete floors were re-coated and sealed, with the new addition also having polished concrete to create a consistent appearance.

The foyer opens up into a large open plan room that houses the living room, dining room and kitchen. The living room is focused on the black brick fireplace and a wall of windows floods the room with natural light.

Just off the living room and dining room is a new patio and pool. When renovating, the designers saved as many of the original plants as possible, including a very mature Monstrose Apple Cactus.

Next to the patio is the new pool that’s surrounded by landscaping that matches the courtyard at the front of the house.

At the other end of the pool is a firepit with chairs, ready for socializing on a cool desert evening.

In the master bathroom, dark tiles have been used to create an accent wall, while a glass partition separates the shower from the bathtub. The dark tiles have also been used on the wall behind the mirror and vanity.
