Two Schindler houses in Inglewood

A pair of Rudolph M. Schindler houses in the Inglewood suburb of Los Angeles have been remodeled and brought into the 21st century. Schindler, of course, is one of the icons of California Mid-Century Modernism, with well-documented homes such as the Kings Road House in West Hollywood.

These gems are off the beaten path a bit and it's wonderful to see them brought back to life in a way that respects the line and form of the original plans.

Each has a prim two-bedroom, one-bath floor layout, with an open, airy look that makes the modern furniture look right at home.

The house profiled in this LA Times article had changed hands but twice in 70 years and still had the original doors and windows and contemporary lighting fixtures.

What's neat is that both houses sit side by side, right next to each other. In addition to the pair of homes, there is another Schindler house just down the street!
