The industrial designer Raymond Loewy commissioned Frey to design a bachelor pad and winter getaway in 1947, in Palm Springs. The small (1100 square feet) house features walls of sliding glass doors opening onto a patio and pool. The outdoor living area contains multiple eating areas, a shaded trellis, and spots for pool-side lounging. As shown in the photos by Julius Shulman, the amoeba-shaped pool even extends under the glass doors and into the living room.
