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.
