Schindler House Restoration

Cameraman Pierluigi Serraino surveys the first stage of restoration work at the Schindler House on Kings Road in 1986. Workers are demolishing later additions to get closer to the 1922 form. Robert Sweeney, Director of Friends of the Schindler House and supervisor of the restoration, describes the work underway to restore the floors and the roof patio to their original state. The camera documents the demolition of a floor, and some old newspapers found on the site. Sweeney takes Mark Schindler, the son of Rudolph and Pauline, and architecture historian Kathryn Smith on a tour of the house, explaining the demolition work under way. Workers uncover a commemorative inscription, and remove substantial parts of the roof patio.

Schindler House Restoration Clyde Chace

Cameraman Pierluigi Serraino tapes Robert Sweeney and Kathryn Smith as they interview Clyde Chace and Ann Harriett, original residents of the Schindler House. The house by Schindler on Kings Road was built for two families: the Schindlers and the Chaces. Clyde Chace worked with Schindler as a contractor on his earliest buildings, 1923-24. Ann Harriett was Chace’s daughter, and lived at Kings Road. The first part of the discussion takes place inside, then on the roof patio, and then back inside while reviewing various publications about Schindler.
