| Steven Lowe purchased the Desert Hot
Springs Motel in 2000, renovated it lovingly, and re-opened it for
business in August 2001. It has since appeared in "In Style"
magazine (Sept 2001), "Travel & Leisure" (June 2001),
and other magazines and symposium brochures. The motel is located
in an unlikely place, not far from Palm Springs but far removed from
the glamour of that city.
of its attraction as a true desert retreat is based on its hidden
location. The motel offers an opportunity for persons to spend time
in a Lautner building that reflects in small and gem-like scale the
architect's approach to all of his work: a blending of indoors and
outdoors, protection from the elements without sacrifice of light
and air, an understanding of real human needs.
