Schindler House on Ellis Avenue, Inglewood, CA

Architect: Ehrlich Architects

2-bedroom house, originally designed by Rudolf M. Schindler in 1939. Sited on a 5,400 square-foot lot, one of three single-story plaster-façade homes by Schindler on this street. In 71 years the house had had only two owners and was in original but very poor condition. The architects’ intention was to honor and conserve the vocabulary of Schindler’s work, while adding modern amenities for contemporary living. “What would Schindler do today?” , was the query. The home is an articulated flat-roofed box, with clerestory windows and large panels of glass bringing in light and opening interior spaces to the garden.
