R. M. Schindler, Architect

The W. E. Tucker House, 1950



First offering since 1975: A comparison between the layers of planes of the front elevations of Gerrit Rietveld’s Schroder House, and Schindler’s late period Tucker House confirm an abiding adaptation of De Stijl principles to R.M.’s “Space Architecture”. But Schindler went further than his predecessors: where Wright may have broken the box, Schindler exploded it, as evidenced at the Tucker House. Upon entry, one is enveloped in space and light, both horizontally and vertically. This interior space is complex, and invites one to cross a small bridge into the master suite, or follow the light to the main living area on the level below where living room, dining area, and kitchen flow seamlessly to an outdoor garden patio, or the panoramic City views. When the second and current owner architect David Serrurier purchased the house it was unfinished. Since that time he has thoughtfully restored, updated, and meticulously maintained the property. The result is a pristine and comfortable, glassy treehouse that retains the integrity of Schindler’s original design. The residence includes: Open Living Room, Dining, and Kitchen area, separate pantry, 3 bedrooms, 2 baths, built-ins, two car garage, and hillside gardens with mature landscaping.
