Schindler FOR SALE: First Offering Since 1959

“Personally, I appreciate Rudolph. He is an incorrigible Bohemian and refuses to allow the Los Angeles barber to apply the razor to the scruff of his neck… I believe, however, that he is capable as an artist… The buildings that he has recently built in Los Angeles are well designed, but badly executed. I suspect him of trying to give his clients too much for their money. I should say that was his extreme fault in these circumstances of endeavoring to build buildings” — Wright, Frank Lloyd

Rudulph Michael Schindler, that is, iconic architect of MCM & Los Angeles. Why do I use the word ‘icon’? Well, many say he build the very first MCM home here in West Hollywood. The Schindler-Chase house was built in 1922 on North Kings Road & quite possibly the best of his work.

Their is now an opportunity to own a piece of Schindler’s work, and an investment with 16 units. The Manola Court, Herman Sachs Apartments, 1926-40. There are 16 units along three street to street hillside lots in the artist community of Silver Lake. Published in the Los Angeles Museum of Art Guide #D.4.5 & may be eligible for historic monument designation. For more detailed information please call Kim at 310-737-8173.

Schindler was known for his creative use of common materials. His use of skin plaster & volume is how he was able to create & maintain an affordable budget on his projects. Visit the MAK Center for more information on R.M. Schindler & to visit the Kings Road home.
