Rudolph Schindler – The Schlessinger Residence, Los Feliz

The Schlessinger Residence, 1952-54. R.M. Schindler, architect.


Conceived in 1952 for an elevated corner lot overlooking the Shakespeare Bridge, coincidentally, within view of the architect’s first work in Los Angeles – the completion of the Hollyhock House at Barnsdall Park.


With Schindler’s passing in 1953 before breaking ground, this would be the site of the last home he would design.


With Eric Lamers overseeing the restoration, it could not have been placed in better hands. In an effort to follow what was believed to have been Schindler’s intentions for the house, every decision was painstakingly considered.


A fitting tribute to a great architect’s last work, and now an incredibly moving example of his much-celebrated architecture of space. Two bedrooms, two baths, & a newly configured office/study; located in the highly desirable Franklin Hills neighborhood of Los Feliz.
