Building Notes

The website of Los Angeles realtor Crosby Doe described the property that the firm offered: "Here is arguably one of Schindler’s most complex hillside designs, with each of the building’s four apartments having a unique relationship to its corner site. Each apartment twists and turns on the hillside for maximum privacy, with unobstructed city views from the roof terraces. The penthouse has the most dramatic view, the richest interior compositions, and is most like a private house with its own garden and guest apartment to the rear. The living room’s plywood ceiling is laid out in a repeating pattern based on subdivisions of Schindler’s 48-inch module. Many original details and building systems have been restored by the current owner making this offering a rare opportunity to own an internationally recognized work by the master of 'Space Architecture.'” (See Crosby Doe, "R.M. Schindler, Architect The S. T. Falk Apartments, 1939-1940," accessed 07/28/2021.)
