Located in the historic Thunderbird Country Club Estates, Palm Pacific Construction, in collaboration with Architect Jill Lewis, masterfully renovated the iconic Barry Estate. Once home to New York congressman Robert R. Barry and host to figures like Dwight D. Eisenhower and the Fords, this 1952 gem was transformed, highlighting its mid-century origins. The project emphasized clean lines, a disciplined palette of white, grey, and matte black, and an indoor-outdoor experience that captures the stunning views and shifting daylight of Rancho Mirage. Key features include a Spanish terrazzo-like porcelain tile, white walls, and matte black metal accents, reflecting a modern elegance with a masculine finish.

The mid-century architectural influence in Palm Springs can’t be ignored, but after ten years living, working and raising a family in Beijing, Hong Kong and currently Buenos Aires, I couldn’t help but bring an usual mix of influences to this very personal project; a vacation home for my family.

Having settled into my office space on Tahquitz Canyon Way, I just wanted to say how much I appreciate the attention to detail that went into the reconstruction of this cool building. A building that was left as an eyesore on the main boulevard in the city for many years, thanks to you, has returned to its glory.

We are proud to have Palm Pacific Construction’s first new construction. Having seen his substantial portfolio of luxury remodels and pool houses, we knew Scott Cullens was the perfect choice to build our dream home. He exceeded our expectations and six years later our house is a beautiful testament to the quality of a PPC home. It’s gratifying to see that PPC has gone on to become one of the leading firms building custom luxury homes in the Coachella Valley.

We have worked with Palm Pacific Construction, Scott Cullens and his dedicated team not just once, but twice. We had purchased a completely tragic home in 2012, which needed a full restructure and redesign. With Scott’s attention to detail and ability to create miracles, we ended up with one of the most beautiful homes in our neighborhood. In 2018, we decided to add a Casita and we immediately approached PPC and Scott, and embarked on our second very successful collaboration and build together. We love our home and highly recommend Scott, Steve and the entire team at Palm Pacific Construction.

We knew Scott Cullens personally and watched his first new construction years ago from the ground up. We were friends with the owners of the project and kept up on the progress “from afar”. Scott’s attention to detail was astounding and the crew at Palm Pacific Construction seemed to have the exact same eye.

We heard about Scott Cullens and Palm Pacific Construction through a good friend in Palm Springs. He was highly recommended as professional and doing quality work,with great taste when you need advice and they did not disappoint. This will be our forever home so we had great comfort in knowing we were taken care of when we werenot there. When we are there, we love showing off our house. It is beautiful and it is our paradise. Thank you Scott and your amazing team for giving us something to be so proud of!!!
