The Hammerman House by Richard Neutra in Bel Air

If you are a fan of Neutra’s work, one of the things that you’ll immediately recognize about the Hammerman House (in addition to its beauty) is its size. With 4,315 square feet of living space, this is on the larger end of the spectrum of homes designed by Neutra.

Wirin House by Richard Neutra in Los Feliz

Yesterday, for the second time in a week, a Neutra home hit the market on the eastside. This time it’s the Alpha Wirin Residence in Los Feliz and it’s a sterling restoration guided by Mark Haddawy, whose impeccable work reflects his appreciation for L.A.’s residential architecture, which he regards as one of the city’s greatest treasures. I’m with him on that.

The Kambara Residence by Richard Neutra

Thanks to a traffic light that was installed on Silver Lake Boulevard making it safe for folks to get to/from the popular meadow alongside the reservoir, it’s virtually impossible for drivers and pedestrians to not take notice of the magnificent Neutra VDL Studio and Residence which is located precisely at the point of this crossing. What many people remain unaware of, however, is the Neutra Colony just a hop, skip and a jump away.

Richard Neutra - Linn House in the Hollywood Hills

Simple lines, simply beautiful. That’s the essence of what you’ll find in the Linn Residence by Richard Neutra in the Hollywood Hills. Neutra fans may recall that the home was sold just last year as a fixer. Now it’s back on the market and I’m happy to report that the buyer did a superb job restoring it and, thankfully, maintained the home’s original character in the process.

Nesbitt House by Richard Neutra in Brentwood

Calling all Richard Neutra fans. This brand new listing in Brentwood is definitely one you’ll want to check out. Originally built for John Nesbitt in 1942, this place is particularly interesting (not to mention beautiful) because it’s a bit of a departure in terms of the materials typically found in the modernist homes for which Neutra is widely known.

The Hailey Residence, Richard Neutra - 1959

f you’ve found yourself singing “All I Want for Christmas is a Neutra Mid-Century” (it's not just me singing that, is it?), then this recent listing in the Hollywood Hills East could make your holiday one to remember. As usual with Neutra, the design of the Hailey Residence is a perfect blend of graceful lines and practical comfort.

The Singleton House by Richard Neutra

Although it’s only Monday, I have an inkling that this may be my architectural pick of the week. The Singleton House by Richard Neutra, one of only two Neutra homes in Bel Air, certainly deserves to be considered one of the iconic homes in the Modernist style. Neutra was commissioned to design the home in the mid-1950’s by industrialist Henry Singleton (Teledyne Corp).

Neutra VDL Art Show

This past Friday, the Neutra VDL Research House in Los Angeles held a special open house presenting Architectones, a site-specific installation by French artist Xavier Veilhan created specifically for the VDL house. The exhibition features sculptures throughout the property, starting with a giant silhouette of Neutra’s profile cut from a steel plate that greets visitors at the entrance. The art presentation allowed for a rare treat… all of the reflecting pools, including the rooftops, which are usually dry, were filled with water.
