During the annual Palm Springs Modernism Week, design and architecture aficionados converge on the city to experience house tours, lectures, films and parties celebrating midcentury modern design. In 2014, a new feature was added to Modernism Week in the form of a designer show house, showcasing interior design and outdoor living. Dubbed the Christopher Kennedy Compound after the Palm Springs interior designer who spearheaded the project, the first year was a marked success, prompting the return of the show house in 2015.

Thirteen designers from across the country combined efforts to complete the design of a 2,500-square-foot midcentury modern home in the Indian Canyons neighborhood of Palm Springs. Drawing over 3,000 visitors, the 2015 show house raised nearly $100,000 for Modernism Week and architectural preservation in the greater Palm Springs area.

To encourage cohesion in the house, Christopher Kennedy suggested a nature-inspired palette of blues and greens to the participating designers. He also encouraged a light and fun aesthetic, in keeping with the Palm Springs lifestyle.
