Westwood – The Tischler Residence by R.M. Schindler
The Tischler Residence by R.M. Schindler, 1949-1950, part of the Los Angeles Historic-Cultural Monument #506.
Westwood Mid Century Modern Home by Rudolph Schindler. This remarkable residence is on the market for the first time since its completion in 1950. R.M. Schindler’s article “Visual Techniques” discussed the subjects of “color plasticity, translucency, reflectors and light.”
These graphic methods are unmistakably conveyed throughout this phenomenal three-story residence crowned with a blue transparent, sky-line roof that looks like an “upside-down glass-bottomed boat.” Glass planes above the kitchen and master bedroom materialize to make the house translucent throughout.
The virtually free-floating metal fireplace in the living room was finished by Adolph Tischler, an artist and metalsmith.
The main living area offers three bedrooms and two bathrooms and leads to a reserved garden in addition to a studio and bathroom with its own separate entrance and original built-in and free-standing period furniture.
One of Adolph Tischler’s daughters said in an interview that her father referred to the residence as his “favorite child.”
