Notes
Survey number HABS CA-1939
Building/structure dates: 1921 initial construction
Significance: Rudolph M. Schindler designed this residence for himself and his friend, Clyde B. Chase; begun in 1921, the building was completed in 1922. Tapered modular concrete wall slabs were poured on the floor slab and then tilted into the vertical position. Massive blank walls are relieved by narrow slits of glass between the panels. While serving as a double residence, the building affords privacy to the individual occupants by positioning of the blank walls and bending of the form of the mass to form pockets of outdoor space. Individual rooms open directly onto these outdoor garden patios through sliding glass panels.
