Two compelling examples of Schindler’s Work

Schindler’s largest building was on the lake on Chicago’s north side, but Schindler’s most interesting buildings are small–right-sized–and in Los Angeles. Here are two of three spec 2 bedroom houses he designed in 1939 in Inglewood, California. We love the furniture and how it plays off against the architecture. Schindler employs roman brick, Wright’s favorite, in a more relaxed manner. Are you a fan of Schindler? We love his work. To us it is FL Wright with room to be yourself. #rudolphschindler #ADU #ChicagoADU #AdditionalDwellingUnit #ChicagoAdditionalDwellingUnit


The Brillance and Simplicity of Ikea Engineering

Want to rotate your art pieces in your living room? Need a system that will not put holes in your walls? One solution is a picture rail. What are the ready made options? We looked and discovered one that was really good and a mere $15 for a meter of length.

Like all Ikea products this one has a name that only can be described as a Viking town pronounced by a Muppet. “Mosslanda” is C shaped and comes in two lengths. Check it out.

ADU studies: Natural Light, Passive Solar and Landscape

Here are three small backyard pavilions we designed for a family in Evanston. They feature natural light, access to landscape and a garden and one has a roof profile designed to allow the low sun to heat the space November through February. They are a great starting point to think about what an additional dwelling unit can offer you and your family. ¿How do you want to live? Have a look and please tell us.

ADU studies: Natural Light, Passive Solar and Landscape

Here is another small naturally lit and ventilated structure that engages the landscape. The wedge shape combined with the coconut color scheme creates a space that’s both cozy and strikingly monumental.

More to follow on this one...
