Regarding Van Dekker House. The house was commissioned by actor Albert Van Dekker, best known for his role in the film The Wild Bunch (1969). The three-story house is 3,756 square feet, one of the largest residences designed by Schindler. It is the first house where he worked with roof forms instead of designing a flat or sloping roof, using a wrinkled copper roof draped over the house.
