architectureforsale.com ™ 310.275.2222 HARWELL HAMILTON HARRIS, F.A.I.A. R.M. SCHINDLER, ARCHITECT THE MARY & LEE BLAIR RESIDENCE, 1939 – Los Angeles It is so common for real estate practitioners to utilize superlatives in advertising property with words like stunning, amazing & masterpiece that they have become virtually meaningless within the context of real property promotion. For this reason I have carefully avoided their use. Here, the ex- ception proves the rule. With clear conscience I claim the Blair Residence to be a genuine Masterpiece of Southern California's built environment. Following a meticulous multi-year restoration the property reflects a timeless brilliance in terms of siting, use of materials, use of space, suitability to purpose, and fully resolved architectural Integrity. The magic of the artists' residence & studio is alive and well, ready to enliven and enhance the life of the next special owner(s) whose needs are compatible with this unique offering. Located in the Hollywood Hills just West of the Cahuenga Pass, the residence is sited for privacy & views of the San Fernando Valley on a carefully landscaped hillside slope, & includes open plan living areas, bedroom, bath, artist's studio & original poured concrete 2 car garage. architectureforsale.com Crosby Doe FIRST OFFERING: THE TISCHLER RESIDENCE, 1949 – 1950 – Westwood Los Angeles Historic-Cultural Monument #506. First time on the market since completion in 1950. Schindler's 1952 article "Visual Techniques," discusses the subjects of "color plasticity, translucency, reflectors and light." These visual techniques are clearly expressed in this monumental three story street facade topped with a blue translucent, sky-like roof resembling an "upside-down glass-bottomed boat." Glass planes above the kitchen and master bedroom appear to make the house transparent throughout. The nearly free-floating metal fireplace in the living room was completed by Adolph Tischler, an artist and metalsmith. 3 bedrooms, 2 bathrooms in the main living space, which opens to a private side garden, a studio/4th bedroom and bath room with separate entrance, and original built-in and free-standing furniture. One of Adolph Tischler's daughters stated in an interview that her father referred to the house as his "favorite child." architectureforsale.com IIana Gafni & Crosby Doe LAVI DANIEL, ARTIST & RENEE BERTRAND, BEDHEAD 2 ARTIST'S OASIS IN THE CITY – Cheviot Hills Two artists have created their own Shangri-la on a quiet corner of Cheviot Hills.
