A trend that began in the 1930's with the influx of Hollywood's elite looking to create a celebrity escape, this mid-century style blossomed from the visionary architects the A-listers brought along to help them design their leisure estates.Characterized by clean, angular lines, lots of glass, and flat roofs, the modernist architecture fit perfectly in the California desert landscape. With bi-level, wide open floor plans and indoor living spaces that flow smoothly into outdoor ones, the style quickly grew in popularity and expanded by the 1950's from celebrity mansions into larger tracts of homes that carried a much more moderate price tag.
