Stay in a Restored Schindler - and Help a Great Cause

This light-filled apartment is part of a 16-unit complex designed between 1926 and 1939 by R.M. Schindler​, one of the forefathers of Modern architecture. It’s an impressive space, which also has the advantage of being located in Silver Lake, one of LA’s hippest neighborhoods.

We are offering two apartments in the complex, and this particular one-bedroom apartment has a unique story. It was restored by its owner, Paul Finegold, in tribute to his late wife Gitu, and 100% of the amount paid for each booking goes to fund research into rare blood-related disorders via the non-profit Live to Give LA.

The apartment is offered on a “stay by donation” model, offering lovers of architecture an opportunity to stay in a building that is of enormous cultural importance, while also contributing to a very worthwhile cause. It also offers guests accommodation in a great LA neighborhood which otherwise has a paucity of elegant hotel accommodations.

Schindler’s client for this project was his friend Herman Sachs, a Romanian-born muralist and decorator known for his work on the Bullocks Wilshire Building, Union Station, and City Hall. The ​design choices emphasize Sachs’ dream for the idea of community throughout the property—for it to be a gathering place for arts and entertainment.

In 2015, five of the apartment units underwent an extensive restoration. The goal of the restoration was to honor Schindler’s original design and intent while updating each space for how we live today. The original cabinetry, finishes, and Schindler-designed furniture were carefully researched and, wherever possible, restored or re-created. The interior design of all five apartment units was done by local firm Platform Home, with landscaping created by local firm, Terremoto.

Ahead of its time and a visionary testament to Schindler’s modern concepts of structural simplicity and individuality, this vacation home for rent in Los Angeles remains as relevant and modern today as it was revolutionary in the 1920s.

Description

Located in the hills of Silver Lake with spectacular views of Los Feliz, the Hollywood sign, and Griffith Observatory, this vacation home for rent in Los Angeles is unassuming from the street. But, after you’ve passed through the terraced cactus garden and through the small front door, the space opens up in an astonishing way.

Schindler was known for this “Space Architecture” experience, in which contraction and expansion is utilized in the design of a space. He was also a master of window placement and maximizing the amount of natural light, and this apartment is a great example of that.

Many of the original features of this apartment, originally dubbed “The Maid’s Room”, remain intact. Enter through the spacious living room, and the eye is drawn towards the picture window overlooking the LA basin. Turn right into the double bedroom. The entire space has been modernized but with careful attention to the original aesthetic that Schindler created.

The apartment is offered on a “stay by donation” model, offering lovers of architecture an opportunity to stay in a building that is of enormous cultural importance, while also contributing to a very worthwhile cause. It also offers guests accommodation in a great LA neighborhood which otherwise has a paucity of elegant hotel accommodations.

ADDITIONAL FEATURES

Wifi throughout, entertainment system, climate control, kitchen and bath amenities, laundry facilities, private parking for one small car.

AROUND

Located in the heart of Silver Lake with stunning views of the iconic Hollywood sign and Griffith Observatory, you are within minutes from Sunset Junction and the Silver Lake Reservoir, and a plethora of renowned dining, shopping, and entertainment destinations. Eclectic, unique and fast becoming the hippest part of LA, the area is filled with vibrant culture and is a short drive to downtown, Los Feliz, Echo Park, and Hollywood.

The property is one third of a mile walk to the bi-weekly Silver Lake Farmers Market and weekly Flea Market and two miles from Griffith Park, one of the nation’s largest urban parks, providing a respite from the city with hiking trails, picnic areas, and cultural attractions. From the sprawling city limits and the coast, to the mountains and beyond, it’s a great central location to explore the City of Angels.
