Crosby Doe Associates, Inc. 9312 Civic Center Drive #102 Beverly Hills CA 90210 310.275.2222 R.M. SCHINDLER, ARCHITECT First Offering: 175 Greenfield Ave – Westwood The Tischler Residence, 1949 – 1950 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 3-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 residence 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 bathroom 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." $1,700,000 / Ilana Gafni & Crosby Doe JOHN KEWELL, A.I.A. 768 Westholme Avenue – Westwood The Schipper Residence, 1952 Gold Medal winner John Kewell, A.I.A. likely met Merle Schipper, who was an art critic, writer, and curator, through their mutual academic associations. Although Kewell is best known for his larger projects such as a masterplan for Cal Tech, his design for Merle's hillside site in Westwood, which is easy walking distance from U.C.L.A., is a c lassic of the period. Merle did much of her work at home so a plan was developed to accommodate living and working. Privacy, space and light are the hallmarks of this post-war open plan residence for art, work and entertaining. Careful updating and revisions by architects Jared Levy and Jeff Allsbrook, A.I.A. add high quality 21st century amenities to a timeless mid-century lifestyle. Residence i ncludes: 2 bedrooms, studio, 2.5 baths, lower level guest room and bath with a separate entry, and detached two car garage. $2,750,000 / Crosby Doe
