Rudolph Schindler designed a small addition to the Yates-Mullen House in 1938; it was a 900-square-foot enlargement designed to provide a sitting area for 50 people to hear piano music; some notable avant-garde performances by musicians, John Cage and Arnold Schoenberg, were staged in this space, built for $2,700. In 1947, Schindler added a small upstairs bedroom to this addition; Frances Mullen taught piano, and she needed a space in which to hold recitals. A CalArts Professor, Thom Anderson, purchased the house in 1996 and, along with architectural designer, Amy Murphy, he spent the next 3 years restoring it.
