Yates Studio, R.M. Schindler, Architect, 1938-1947

No. 19-1735 Micheltorena  Roof Studio viewPeter Yates was a music critic for Arts & Architecture Magazine and wanted Schindler to ‘create a studio space’ for live performance of modern composers. Originally they planned to build a studio behind the house, however Shindler came up with the idea of putting the studio on top of the house to take advantage of the views.
The Yates Studio is located at 1735 Micheltorena Street in the Moreno Highlands of Silver Lake.
