Clopay® Garage Doors Selected for Modernism Week Show House 2016: The Christopher Kennedy Compound

Feb 11, 2016

Modernism Home - Avante
Noted Palm Springs designer Christopher Kennedy has selected Clopay Avante Collection glass garage doors for the 2016 Modernism Week Show House: The Christopher Kennedy Compound.

Situated on the fairway of Indian Canyons Golf resort, a favorite of Rat Pack-era Hollywood stars like Frank Sinatra and Bob Hope, the 2016 Christopher Kennedy Compound has been reimagined for modern Southern California living by Kennedy and a roster of celebrity designers including Martyn Lawrence Bullard, Bravo’s Carson Kressley, Michel Boyd, HGTV’s Jamie Durie and Kelli Ellis, Justin Shaulis, Style Blogger Kelly Golightly, Trellis Home, Bradshaw Orrell and more.

“My goal with The Christopher Kennedy Compound is to celebrate Palm Springs architecture in its heyday,” explains Kennedy, “while updating a swanky vintage house for the realities of modern living, using the best of today’s technology.”

The attached garage is an architectural focal point of the ranch style home. Kennedy chose Avante Collection overhead doors with black anodized aluminum frames and opaque glass panels to complement the home’s clean lines and white exterior. The doors let natural light inside the space during the day without compromising privacy. At night, they emit a warm glow, much like the home’s desert surround just before sunset.

The Christopher Kennedy Compound is open for public tours during Modernism Week, an annual event celebrating Palm Springs’ legacy of midcentury modern architecture. Presented by media sponsors Traditional Home and California Homes magazines, the event attracts more than 40,000 visitors.
