Palm Springs Dome House

Architect Pavlina Williams transformed his dome-shaped house in Palm Springs through renovations that added new windows and created open-plan interiors. Williams, Senior Architect in R&A Architecture and Design, has renovated his house from the inside out, coordinating all the work, fading the interior and knocking down the walls to create a space full of light.

Built in 1956, the Palm Springs Dome House includes a half-globe portion and a rectangular section. The brown asphalt roof tiles cover the rounded exterior, with other parts made of glass and light bricks.

"It was originally designed and built by the former owner, who was a chemical engineer in Torrance, California," Williams said. "He ordered the dome as a kit and had it fitted to local carpenters, they started building the house over the years. 50 and then added the dome in the 70s ".

Originally, the house had a grid layout of small rooms lined with carpet and linoleum. Williams updated the polished concrete floor and incorporated white and metal surfaces in his redesign. A new Fontanot stainless steel spiral staircase leads to a loft section in the glazed atrium. The new windows are best appreciated by a living room on the ground floor, where the domed construction is expressed through the ceiling, which reaches eight meters at its highest point.

The Palm Springs Dome House also contains three bedrooms and three bathrooms, with a sleeping area and bathroom in its lofted portion. Sliding glass doors open onto a patio with outdoor dining area. The garden is landscaped with tall cacti, boulders and milestones. Attached to the side of the house is a small white geodesic dome that currently houses a fiberglass whirlpool tub.
