After almost 20 years, Calgary architect Robert Pashuk still cant get enough of Palm Springs.
Calgary’s Robert Pashuk—who splits his time between crafting beautiful, modern residential and commercial spaces with his firm and running his own design store, Pomp and Circumstance—first visited Palm Springs in 1997. He went to Santa Barbara for a wedding, but he found true love in the other city, falling for PS’s stellar weather and pitch-perfect mid-century architecture. He’s been visiting up to eight times a year ever since.
In October and February every year, it’s Modernism Week. We try to attend annually, as it’s one of the largest design festivals in North America. It’s 10 days of home tours, exhibitions, trade shows and martini parties. modernismweek.com
Birba is a great casual dining option right on North Palm Canyon Drive. This Italian bistro has great forno oven pizzas and salads, and sitting out under the stars can’t be beat. (There’s actually no indoor seating here at all.) birbaps.com
One of my favourite places to stop for lunch is Norma’s at the Parker Hotel. The glamour is over the top. The fish and chips, which is made of lobster and sea bass, is amazing! theparkerpalmsprings.com
I love the Palm Springs International Airport. You get off the plane, walk out of the Jetway and you’re suddenly outside, under palm trees.
Another newcomer is Workshop, just up the street from Birba. This has an awesome design factor—I enjoy eating here just to look at the details. workshoppalmsprings.com
