Tinkering with a legendary architect’s work is a no-no. Seriously, don’t do it … unless of course you hire the architect himself or his trusted associates to make the changes. Then the results are surprisingly delightful.

This is the first public offering of City of Los Angeles Cultural Historic Monument #380 located in the Hollywood Hills. Architect Rudolph Schindler designed the residence in 1946 for artist and art director for Universal Studios, Mischa Kallis.

In true Schindler fashion he seamlessly integrated the original design, consisting of the main house and an art studio, into a challenging hillside. To help the home “disappear among the trees” he used vertical split-stake wood fencing.

Kallis-Sharlin Home by Rudolph Schindler in the Hollywood Hills

Kallis lived in the home for many years before selling it to his cousin, Jacqueline, a concert pianist, and husband William Sharlin. The Sharlins hired Schindler’s associate, Josef Van der Kar, to expand and connect the structures. Later, architect Leroy Miller stepped in to convert the art studio into a master bedroom with a bathroom.
