Gold outside and pink inside, this Southern California home is a sublime example of Schindler’s “plaster skin” phase.
Designed by pioneering architect R.M. Schindler, this Sherman Oaks, California, residence’s living areas are spread across almost 1,700 square feet with varying ceiling heights and window sizes that cleverly move light throughout the home.
On full display is also Schindler's signature "plaster skin" design, in which stucco and plaster, instead of concrete, surround a wooden frame. This approach lowered the construction costs, making his modern designs more inexpensive and attainable.
Last sold 15 years ago, the property is also a Los Angeles historic-cultural monument, providing it with significant property tax reductions related to the Mills Act. As the only Schindler home currently for sale, the meticulously restored home is bound to go fast.
