What Houzz contributors are saying:

The plan is unique not only for the way it defines indoor zones and outdoor spaces (seven distinct living spaces outside!), but also because it is completely without bedrooms. Inspired by future client Phillip Lovell's ideas on health and outdoor living, the families slept in the open in "sleeping baskets" that were lofts above the entrances. Schindler was not the only architect to embrace this idea (the Greenes incorporated sleeping porches in their Gamble House), but sleeping lofts in a communal dwelling were unique.
