Manola Court Apartment Building, R.M. Schindler, Architect, 1926-1940

Rudolph Schindler designed Manola Court for his client, artist/designer Herman Sachs over a 14-year period. They are an excellent example of Schindler's abstract style. Located at 1811-1830 Edgecliffe Drive. The entire complex of sixteen residences 'set within hilliside gardens on three adjacent street-to-street parcels' was listed for sale (July 2008) for $3M. A dramatic 2-story owner's loft connects directly to the original studio.
