Kings Rd house - Rudolph Schindler

Rudolph Schindler's house in the West Hollywood of 1920.

Designed for himself, his wife and another couple with whom they shared the timber and concrete tilt-slab built house, each of the couples had their own wing, their own studios, and their own courtyards in the cunningly designed pinwheel layout.

Nothing like it had been seen before in Southern California.
