Luxury comes in all shapes and sizes. Today we take a look at a legendary home which was recently brought back to life. Architectural designer Herbert W. Burns created the Gillman House. The home was initially built back in 1948 and was partially demolished before sitting in ruins for years. Thomboy Properties came in and brought the home back to life for Modernism Week 2020. Inspired by the designs of Frank Lloyd Wright and Le Corbusier, the home features horizontal lines, a flat roof, and more iconic features.
The cantilevered overhangs, grids of glass, and planters are a nice touch, adding a mid-century modern approach. The exterior boasts Arizona sandstone, which flows seamlessly to a renovated interior. The modern updates accent the home’s historical details, doing so flawlessly throughout the 4,700-square foot space.
The dwelling is now outfitted with solar power, a new kitchen featuring teak cabinets and professional-grade appliances. The living spaces include terrazzo floors while offering an indoor-outdoor lifestyle with seamless transitions. The outdoor area was designed to embrace desert living, including a pool, spa, and deep overhangs to shield the sun.
Take a closer look at this eye-catching mid-century modern design in the images below. Learn more about the Gillman House from Thomboy Properties and stay tuned with The Culture Curators for more outstanding architecture coming very soon.
