Austrian architect R.M. Schindler (Sept. 10, 1887 - Aug. 22, 1953) came to Los Angeles in 1922 to work on the Hollyhock House for oil heiress Aline Barnsdall. In 2014, his “Small Desert Home” became Palm Desert ’s first residence to be declared a historic landmark. The application for the status quotes Schindler as saying the house is “shaded by an ample but lightly poised roof reminiscent of a giant oak leaf.” He also built Popenoe Cabin (since demolished) in Palm Desert before the city was incorporated and the nearby Maryon Toole Residence, which has been protected by only two owners since its construction.
