We visited the Schindler House as part of a group of architecture enthusiasts touring some of LA's significant architectural sites. This is indeed a significant site. But I don't think this house will be of much interest to those who are not in the design/architecture...More

We're architecture tourists, and modernism is our thing. The Schindler House is an early example (c1922) of international modernist architecture in LA, located in a suburban street in West Hollywood, you feel like you've stumbled into a secret garden. We enjoyed visiting this modest dwelling,...More

Went there not too sure what to expect and was thoroughly impressed. Schindler's residence is almost more traditional Japanese than Modernist American architecture, but its setting on the plot, and its seamless integration of indoor and outdoor is definitely innovative and contemporary. The building itself...More

My partner and I (in our 40s) dropped in at the Schindler House and it is such a unique - and easy stop - that it really adds a bit of extra flavour and dimension to an L.A. trip. I'm the one with architectural training,...More

This house in really interesting in so many ways. In historical context it's an early international style modern home built with many utopian and socialistic ideals and has an interesting family history. On a practical level it's an uninhabitable concept house that is interesting in...More

Tucked amongst the bungalows and small apartment buildings of West Hollywood is Schindler House, reportedly the first modern house in California. If you manage your expectations, you will enjoy the experience of visiting this quiet escape in LA. It is a small property and rooms...More

Be careful of their home tours. You pay a pretty stiff fee for a home tour that on the website says begins at 11am and will take about 3.5 hours. You then get your tickets in the mail on the Friday afternoon before the tour...More

The Schindler house is widely considered to be the first modern house. The flow of space and unique uses of spatial arrangement, finish materials, lighting and intersecting lines are incredibly fascinating. The house is 90 years old and looks like it could have been built...More

Simply put, this is one of the most revolutionary houses ever built. The spareness and simplicity of the building is amazing: it's often described as half-tent, half-house. Schindler rethought what it means to live, and to live in relationships with others, and designed a building...More
