For the first time on the market since its completion in 1950, The Tischler House by R.M. Schindler. This incredibly designed three-bedroom, three-bath home is Los Angeles Historic-Cultural Monument #506.
In Schindler’s 1952 article, “Visual Techniques,” he discusses the subjects of “color plasticity, translucency, reflectors and light.” These visual techniques are clearly expressed in this monumental three-story street facade topped with a blue translucent, sky-like roof resembling an “upside-down glass-bottomed boat.”
Glass planes above the kitchen and master bedroom appear to make the house transparent throughout. The nearly free-floating metal fireplace in the living room was completed by Adolph Tischler, an artist and metalsmith.
The residence’s main living space opens to a private side garden, a studio/fourth bedroom, and bathroom with separate entrance. There is original, built-in and free-standing furniture throughout.
One of Adolph Tischler’s daughters stated in an interview that her father referred to The Tischler House as his “favorite child.”
This home is definitely a must see!
