Kaptur Kool: The Selzer Residence

Friday, February 1, 2019

The rarely-seen Paul and Kay Selzer Residence, designed by architect Hugh Kaptur in 1988, was the site of a magical evening event attended by more than 150 partygoers. When asked about the residence Kaptur opines, "I consider the Selzer House to be the best house that I've ever designed." Partygoers enjoyed hors d'oeuvres, adult beverages, and spectacular uninterrupted westerly views of the San Jacinto mountains. During the event, Kaptur was presented a certificate from Lawrence Technological University recognizing him as an Affiliated Professor of Architecture. Guests were the first to receive a copy of PSPF's new 152-page book, The Modern Architecture of Hugh Michael Kaptur, written by PSPF board member Steven Keylon.

The evening was made possible by the support of Sara Swanson and Alex Dethier (Paul Kaplan Group and Palm Springs Homes).
