Historical Summary:

The former residence located at 833, 835 and 837 N. Kings Road (Schindler House) is constructed in the modern architectural style. The building is constructed as a combination of masonry walls with light screen openings to private gardens and courts, with two entrances at corners indented and constructed of redwood. The home was originally designed for occupancy by two couples. The plans for the structure provided each couple with two studio rooms, an entrance hall from which access to the bathroom was achieved, and an outdoor living room. The design provides a sense of "equality" in the living spaces and provided for privacy of each pair of tenants. Constructed in 1922, Schindler House was the first house designed by noted architect Rudolph Schindler following his departure from the design offices of Frank Lloyd Wright. The home served as his residence as well as that of Richard Neutra who, with Schindler, formed the Architectural Group for Industry and Commerce (AGIC).
