Landfair Apartments

Landfair Apartments

In both appearance and building type, the Landfair Apartments was an oddity for Southern Californians. Aesthetically the Neu Sidelingen – the “new sensibility” – of the structure made it appear to be a transposed element of the flat-roofed municipal housing projects of central Europe.

The complex contains six apartments each with four rooms staggered in row facing east and two units with five rooms on the east side, pivoting away from the L-shaped building for privacy.

Since 1941, the apartments have been used as UCLA student housing since.
