The McAlmon Guest House, 1935 :: Moving away from ornament and instead toward emphasis on interior space with articulated sections, Rudolph Schindler ushered in a new wave of architecture that embodied spatial ideas. Here in the hills above Silver Lake, the McAlmon Guest House is a prime example of his use of three-dimensional form. Inside, thoughtful window placement floods living spaces with natural light, and warm wood flooring contrasts crisp white walls. Original brick fireplace anchors the living room, and a respectful renovation by the current owner includes a complete historic recreation of its bathroom. Outside, secluded terrace and garden lend to the home’s quiet and private ambiance, yet the site is in a prime location: steps from restaurants Little Pine, Blair’s, and the shops of Rowena, minutes from Trader Joes and the Whole Foods soon to open. Unit includes one garage and driveway space and plenty of street parking for guests. Accessible signature architecture close to it all.
