From the street, the Bubeshko Apartments haven’t changed much in the 74 years since they were constructed. Giant planters that Schindler had hoped would shroud the terraces in meandering vines proved to be difficult to maintain. Owner Joe DeMarie hopes to connect them to an irrigation system to produce the hanging-gardens effect Schindler envisioned.
DeMarie used these images to determine the best way to update the recessed lighting and recreate the original shade of stain applied on the plywood walls. The photos are currently housed in Shulman’s archives at the Getty Research Institute.
