The opening sentence of Diane Haithman's recent article ("Builder, Architects Have Designs on Kings Road" in "Arts Notes," Dec. 7) states that the Schindler House in West Hollywood is a designated historic landmark and the sentence ends by asking "but what about the house next door?" This is an excellent question. We are curious, however, why the question is never answered or explored. The property in question, at 825 Kings Road, is not described. The cultural heritage nomination on the property is not reviewed.

West Hollywood's Schindler House is a designated historic landmark -- but what about the house next door? Earlier this year, a local developer planning a condominium project for 825 Kings Road, a property adjacent to the Schindler House, met with "Architectural Resistance." That's the name of a competition sponsored by the MAK Center for Art and Architecture, which uses the Schindler House as its headquarters.

A proposed condominium project on Kings Road in West Hollywood that sparked protests from friends and inhabitants of the neighboring Schindler House has been unanimously approved by the West Hollywood Planning Commission. For more than a year, officials at the MAK Center for Art and Architecture, which occupies the historic Rudolf M. Schindler-designed property, have fought the development, saying the complex would dwarf the seminal Modernist building.

On Kings Road in West Hollywood, a proposed new condominium complex has strained neighbor relations across a bamboo hedge -- a commonplace scenario across the country. But in this case, the neighbor is a historic landmark, the Schindler House, and its occupants are using the "weapons" they have -- alternative ideas -- to fight the developer's plans.

A banner hanging Wednesday night across the entrance to the Schindler House in West Hollywood declared, in big red letters, "Architectural Resistance." In a courtyard beyond it, about 150 people sipped wine and listened as a developer wrangled with three architects and the executive director of the MAK Center for Art and Architecture, which operates the modernist landmark. The occasion for resistance?

Split-level rooms surrounding a central courtyard and sliding glass doors that disappear into walls have created a contemporary-style tree house of sorts on a Pacific Palisades hillside. All the rooms in this newly constructed home have light on at least two sides, bringing nature indoors to three levels of open space.

WHEN YOU first drive up the quiet street in Pacific Palisades, you have little idea that Santa Monica architects Hadrian Predock and John Frane have upended an inviolate principle of hillside homes: that the side hugging the slope can't allow in light. Built for architect-turned-developer Richard Loring and his family, the house rises only 20 feet above street level and is a portrait of urban modesty. Clad in dark-stained redwood, it hardly seems to challenge the norms of modern architecture.

It restlessly searches 3,000 miles of earth and ocean, using thousands of antennae firing within milliseconds of each other as "eyes," all looking for one thing: enemy missiles. For 22 years, the 10-story PAVE PAWS early warning radar station has scanned the Atlantic Ocean from its perch on Cape Cod's Flatrock Hill, just beyond the Sagamore Bridge. Air Force officials say it's vital to national security and a possible key to a future national missile defense system.

The facade of the new town house complex has 27 windows of differing sizes, all placed in a seemingly random pattern across the 80-foot-long front wall. The glass panes have been pushed out 6 inches, and the backs of their frames have been painted a variety of hues, so as the sun rises, the four-story stucco building glows with soft, shifting color.
