Enjoy browsing, but unless otherwise noted, these houses are private property and closed to the public -- so don't go tromping around uninvited.


Chambers was born in Los Angeles and raised in Banning CA.  He attended USC and served in the Marines during WWII as an architect working on Camp Pendleton.  He worked solo briefly then joined the firm of Albert Frey and John Porter Clark in 1946, becoming a partner in 1952. 

With Frey, Chambers worked on Frey's second house, the Palm Springs Tramway, and the Palm Springs Tramway Gas Station. 

Chambers left Palm Springs to be campus architect at UC-Santa Barbara.  He retired in 1980, moving and buying a Cliff May house in Borrego Springs CA.  There, his practice boomed with residential work. Chambers moved to Santa Barbara in 1998 and died the next year.
