Go Inside the James Eads How House, 1925 by R.M. Schindler, Architect

Silver Ridge - 34

The How House :: Photography by Brian Thomas Jones

Widely published, thoroughly researched and extensively documented, The How House is arguably one of Schindler’s most significant and influential works. Revolutionary in 1925, yet forward-looking to this day, the timeless design is a formal Modernist composition, yet simultaneously comfortable and embracing, with interlocking 3-dimensional volumes, and the play of scale and proportion used successfully to dramatic effect. Constructed almost entirely of center-cut Redwood and poured-in-place concrete inside and out, this masterpiece has been meticulously restored to museum quality, yet aligned with the lifestyle of the current era. Four fireplaces warm the den, dining room, library and two-story coffered living room, and clever corner window conditions bathe the interior in natural light. Richard Neutra designed the garden with a substantial flat terrace, unusual for a quiet hillside site, with panoramic views of the San Fernando Valley with the San Gabriel Mountains beyond. City of Los Angeles Historical-Cultural Monument No. 895, with substantial Mills Act tax benefits. Own a piece of history.
