Calle Miraleste, extraordinary mid-century

Recently I photographed another midcentury jewel in The Racquet Club Road estates area of Palm Springs, CA. Racquet Club neighborhood is where the largest numbers of Alexander homes were constructed during the years of 1959 and 1960. They were the most affordable and the largest in lot size and home blueprint. 

There are more than 300 Alexander homes located in the Racquet Club Estates section of Palm Springs, considered North Palm Springs area, north of Vista Chino and East of Indian Canyon Drive. Today, many of these mid-century houses (including Via Miraleste) have been renovated and improved. 

Enjoy some of the this home's best features.  For more of my work or to book a photo shoot:

Museu de Arte do Rio

One of my latest photo shoots and a fantastic experience in one of the newest museums in Rio de Janeiro. Designed by Bernardes + Jacobsen Arquitetura, The Museu de Arte do Rio, was built inside the remodeled interiors of the Palacete Dom João, an early-twentieth-century palace beside Mauá Square in Rio’s Porto Maravilha. It blends the new and the old thru its “wave” inspired roof and a suspended structure/passage way that connects to the old imperial palace. The main building introduces the future of architecture in Brazil.

Contemporary Kitchen, Vintage Style Carthay Square, Los Angeles

A high-style kitchen remodel that combines the vintage history of Carthay Square. with contemporary living. Last week I had the opportunity to shoot this gorgeous kitchen and bath designed by Alison Glen at LA Dwelling. Spacious and freshly designed, the kitchen nods to it's English Tudor history and looks to remain timeless for many years to come.

The Carthay Circle neighborhood is located in the Mid-Wilshire and Miracle Mile area of Los Angeles and it is one of the most historic neighbourhoods in the city. Originally Carthay Center and developed by J. Harvey McCarthy between 1922 and 1944, the area’s architecture is represented by Tudor, French, American and Spanish Colonial Revival styles of homes.
