Bubeshko Apartments, R.M. Schindler, Architect, 1938-41, a photo by Michael Locke on Flickr.
The Anastasia & Luby Bubeshko Apartments designed by Rudolph Schindler. Garnering world acclaim, the building was featured in the MOCA Schindler Retrospective as one of the architect's best-known multi-family designs. Located at the Southeast corner of Lyric Avenue and Griffith Park Blvd., these much-photographed apartments have great indoor/outdoor flow with their oversize roof terraces. The Mayan style blocks add a dramatic element.
These landmark apartments recently (June 2004) went on the market for $1.5 Million. Declared a Los Angeles Historic-Cultural Monument in 2006 (No. 831). Update: The apartments are one of the recipients of the 2010 Los Angeles Conservancy Preservation Awards. The restoration effort was led by Owners: Madeleine Brand & Joe DeMarie, architect Architect / Preservation Architect: DSH / Eric Haas & Chava Danielson; Contractor: Joe DeMarie and Landscape Designer: Thaya DuBois.
