R. M. Schindler, Architect

Manola Court, the Herman Sachs Apartments, 1926-40



Los Angeles County Museum of Art guide # D.4.5. Sixteen City view residences are sited on three separate parcels in Silver Lake. Like an ancient European hill town, Schindler steps the buildings up the hillside, and creates a sense of community by interconnecting living space with garden walkways. The unique character of the individual units is unified and tied together with extended window fascia, and abstract ornamentation that organizes the massing of the spaces, as well as accentuating the dynamic vertical thrust of the buildings. International recognition of this low density garden complex strengthens eligibility for possible historic monument designation.
