When a rare 1963 Krisel-designed custom home came on the market in Palm Springs, a Canadian couple snapped it up with the intent of using it as a vacation home for their family when the weather got chilly up north.

The house, though, had endured the whims of numerous owners, its clean lines faded under heavy landscaping and layers of not-so-appropriate interior finishes. They asked architect Sean Lockyer, principal of Studio AR+D, to restore the home to its midcentury serenity and to tweak the floor plan to accommodate 21st-century living.
