The History of TheBank Palm Springs
Architect, E. Stewart Williams
E. Stewart Williams, FAIA, born in 1909, was the eldest son of Harry Williams (Architect of the historic La Plaza Shopping Center in Palm Springs). As did his father (and later his younger brother), Williams studied architecture at Cornell
and went on to receive his Masters from University of Pennsylvania in 1933.
In addition to the Frank Sinatra House (his first residential commission), Williams has designed numerous architecturally significant private residences throughout the Coachella Valley. Among his major commercial projects are Coachella Savings and Loan (I and II), the Oasis Office Building, Crafton Hills College (in Yucaipa), Santa Fe Savings Bank and the Upper Mountain Station of the Palm Springs Aerial Tramway.
His most dramatic public building is the Palm Springs Desert Museum. It’s first phase was designed in 1976. His last project was a major expansion of the Desert Museum known as the "Steve Chase Addition." The Addition was designed in 1990-93 and completed in 1996, when Mr. Williams was 87 years old.
Guests have full access including the catering prep area. Maximum capacity is 290 but can also be augmented by using the outdoor spaces as well.
