IRVINE, Calif. – March 28, 2017 – In its debut seminar “Restoring and Renovating your Midcentury Modern Home,” Atomic Ranch magazine hosted a sold-out panel discussion and visual presentation, organized renovated home tours and distributed more than 3,000 magazines at Modernism Week in Palm Springs, California on February 16-26. The event reached 428 attendees over a two-day period.

Editor Sarah Jane Stone was thrilled with how well received the topic was to Modernism Week attendees. “Midcentury modern homeowners will need to renovate eventually. They are looking for advice on how to do it thoughtfully.”

The expert panel included Steven Shields of Shields Residential, and Howard Hawkes and Kevin Kemper of H3K Design, and explored specific issues such as flat roofs, respecting the architecture while updating technology, and generally opening up the floor plan. The seminar was followed by tours of three recently renovated Palm Springs residences conducted by the homeowners. Stone said attendees had the opportunity to get information for tackling their own renovation projects.

In addition, Atomic Ranch hosted a booth at the “Show and Sale” and collected more than 1,500 entries to win a complete modern living room set provided by furniture designer / retailer Casara Modern.

Atomic Ranch concluded the week with a hosted mixer at “The Lost Wexler” — a name given to the home by Troy Kudlac of KUD Properties after he discovered, during the renovation process, that the home was designed by famed architect Donald Wexler.
