The MAK Center for Art and Architecture at the Schindler House, the Los Angeles-based non-profit headquartered in the birthplace of Southern California modernism—architect R.M. Schindler’s landmark West Hollywood home—continued the tradition of annual architecture tours by highlighting three houses designed by Schindler to promote and redefine modern, affordable living in 1940s Los Angeles.
Five years before there were any Case Study Houses, Schindler, in collaboration with his draftsman E. Richard Lind, set out to develop a series of three small houses: flexible in both their open floor plans and easy indoor-outdoor circulation, designed to meet the universal needs of single-family housing.
To celebrate the restoration and renovation of these three historically significant houses previously unavailable to the public the MAK Center and our generous homeowners invited guests to a champagne reception and unique retail experience, created by the design collective Extended Family Projects:
#Extendedfamilyprojects is a mindfully curated event created by Juliette Bellocq, Kali Nikitas, and Iris Anna Regn. This #2ndextendedfamily sale was the culmination of a year of collecting art and design objects made by artisan friends and makers worldwide.
