Master Developer: Dennis Cunningham, Palm Springs Modern Homes
Palm Springs Modern Homes was established in 1997 by Dennis and Cheryl Cunningham. The vision behind the company was to design and develop modern housing in the desert with the promise of great architecture at an affordable price. Initially the company created a number of custom homes, then later became the first developer to build modern multi-family living spaces in the city of Palm Springs since the early 1980’s. From that point forward, the company earned a solid reputation in both design and construction.
To date, Palm Springs Modern Construction has built over 250 residential units for PSMH. The development of the construction division grew organically as a result of the company's reputation as a builder of modern architecture. Clients that purchased a home from Palm Springs Modern Homes, approached PSMH about other personal or business needs. As a result, PSMH created a new platform in which to service the rapidly growing building needs in the City of Palm Springs for remodeling, as well as new residential and commercial construction.
For more than a decade, Dennis Cunningham, the principal of Palm Springs Modern Homes has worked closely with the City of Palm Springs to address how best to extend good design ideas in development while preserving the city’s mid-century modernist tradition. Some of the results of that ongoing dialogue resulted in a number of high-profile awards, a museum exhibition and many articles in prominent trade and consumer publications. Palm Springs Modern Homes specializes in the creation of unique modern communities in Palm Springs and other desert cities. Their innovative designs are inspired by the ongoing legacy of modern desert living and seek to advance an emblematic Palm Springs lifestyle.
Palm Springs Modern Homes has created elegant designs that reflect cosmopolitan living in the modern desert setting. Their striking contemporary achitecture is evident in their many development communities, including: 5 @ Miraleste, 7 @ Twin Palms, 18 @ Twin Palms, 43 @ Racquet Club, 48 @ Arenas, 48 @ Baristo, and Dunes Court, all located in Palm Springs..
Dennis Cunningham brought to Palm Springs the experience of a life long career though all aspects of real estate design, development and construction. As the recipient of many industry achievements and Builder of the Year awards, with development projects published in both national and local periodicals, Cunningham has been recognized with various civic honors presented by the communities of the Desert Cities. Under his direct management, Palm Springs Modern Homes has built its reputation as an innovative builder of new, stylish, contemporary housing.
