Gravilla St | La Jolla
Rudolph Schindler, 1923; El Pueblo Ribera Court; La Jolla California. One of the most influential pioneers of the modernist movement, Schindler was a protégé of Frank Lloyd Wright and a close friend and colleague of Richard Neutra. El Pueblo Ribera Court is one of only a few Schindler projects outside of the Los Angeles area (and one of only two beach projects existing). Expanding on his famous King’s Road house (in which both Schindler and Neutra lived together), Schindler cleverly utilized concrete poured in movable forms to create the now 6-unit Pueblo Ribera Court in La Jolla. Perched just above famous surf spot Windansea Beach, with ocean views and sounds of waves crashing, this concrete and redwood two-bedroom/two-bath (plus office/bedroom with bath) functional piece of art has been sensitively restored and enhanced. The property’s outdoor courtyard, accented with a 1,500+ sq ft deck and patio with spa and showers, maximizes the relaxed indoor-outdoor 21st Century lifestyle. San Diego Historic Site #117; the property receives Mills Act (reduced property tax) recognition.
