Named by The Hollywood Reporter as the “#1 Must-See Event of Modernism Week!” Traditional Home and California Homes magazines present Modernism Week Show House 2016: The Christopher Kennedy Compound. For the third year, Christopher brings together ten of the nations most prominent tastemakers to create unique rooms in this showcase house, including Martyn Lawrence Bullard, Michael Berman, Bravo’s Carson Kressley, Michel Boyd, HGTV’s Jamie Durie and Kelli Ellis, Justin Shaulis, Style Blogger Kelly Golightly, Trellis Home, 31 Westgate, Patrick Dragonette, and more. The home is spectacularly sited on the fairway of the Indian Canyons Golf Resort, a favorite of Hollywood stars like Frank Sinatra, Walt Disney and Bob Hope.

The Christopher Kennedy Compound was specifically created to raise funds in support of Modernism Week and other preservation efforts. This quintessential remodel respects the modernist property’s architectural pedigree while updating it with the best and brightest materials in modern design. The project is brought to life by ArtHouse Construction, Bosch, Ferguson, Crestron, Dorn Bracht, Pratt & Lambert Paint, Emser Tile and more than three dozen other local and national design resources.

As an added bonus and value, this year, The Christopher Kennedy Compound will have two homes on tour. The Freedman Residence is adjacent to the Modernism Week Show House and will be included in your ticket price and tour. This stunning home was built in 1969; like many homes in the Indian Canyons area, it was designed by architect Harold L. (Hal) Lacy and built by Paul Butler. The Freedman Residence was completely renovated by Christopher Kennedy and ArtHouse Construction in 2015. It truly blurs the lines between inside and outside living with stunning views of the Indian Canyons Golf Resort and surrounding mountains. The home features an Italian modern kitchen from Aran Cucine, Cosentino counters, plumbing fixtures by Kohler, and many other design features. The home is also a model of sustainability with extensive solar panels, desert landscaping, LED lighting, and a vegetable garden.

Special Instructions or Restrictions:
Each tour starts on the hour and lasts 45 minutes to one hour. Please no children below the age of 5. No pets. No professional photography. Location to be revealed at time of ticket purchase.
