James Eads How House / Rudolph Schindler


The How House, a prime example of prominent 20th-century architect Rudolph Schindler’s early works, has come on the market in Silver Lake. It’s currently listed for $2,500,000.

Designed for James Eads How, a physician and activist often referred to as Millionaire Hobo, the 2,464-square-foot home comprises interlocking rectilinear volumes that feature a slab concrete base, geometric redwood panels and beams, and striking glass walls. This masterful spatial and material composition comes alive in the two-story vaulted living room.

The home was designated an LA historical-cultural monument in 2007, after then-owner, producer/midcentury-home-collector Michael LaFetra, thoroughly restored the place to museum quality, a process that also uncovered a flat-terrace garden designed by another LA modernist great, Richard Neutra — via Curbed
