|Discussion||W. E. Oliver House Commentary
"[The] William Oliver house, Los Angeles, 1933. Built on a hillside lot, the house had a wood stud frame which was modified to permit a wider use of large glass areas. It was built at a cost of $4 per square foot. The living room was furnished with Schindler's unit furniture, which could be assembled in a variety of combinations. Schindler felt that furniture should merge with the house, leaving the room free to express its form."
Esther McCoy. Five California Architects. p170.

"Once an architect begins to worry about tying things down and about correct spacings, he arrives only at formal harmonies, and these have little to do with living."
Rudolph M. Schindler. Esther McCoy. Five California Architects. p173-175.
