The event, entitled The Desert Eichler: A Talk and Tourwill explore the process of building a modernized Eichler home in Palm Springs and examine the challenges of renovation versus preservation, all while touring the home and enjoying some delicious drinks and hors d’oeuvres

  • How to integrate smart upgrades into your own home
  • How to buy your own midcentury dream home
  • Finding retro inspiration in homes of the past

“Born and raised in Southern California, where the thread of Eichler homes have been woven through our history in such a unique way, I can’t help but be amazed at this exciting next chapter for the story of Eichler homes and to be spread into Palm Springs, the Mecca of modernist design,” says Torres.
