Schindler designed the residence, music studio, and interior furnishings for Mildred Southall, a composer and music teacher. Schindler needed to design the main living room to serve as both a family sitting area and a music room, accommodating two grand pianos, blackboards and other teaching materials. Angled at 45 degrees, the studio/living room and nursery were planned to take maximum advantage of the panoramic view to the the south.

The house was built on a steeply sloping, wooded lot next to Elysian Park.
