For our Summer 2012 and Banana Republic Trina Turk Collection photoshoots, finding the right location was a crucial detail. Fortunately, we were able to photograph both campaigns at the famous Kaufmann Desert House in Palm Springs. We can’t think of any other place we’d rather be this summer.
Designed by Richard Neutra and built in 1946, the home gained fame for its mid-century architecture when it was photographed by Julius Shulman in 1947. The five-bedroom, five-bathroom house was built as a desert retreat for Kaufmann, and features large sliding-glass doors that open the home’s interior to outdoor patios that emphasize a connection to the desert landscape.
