Richard Neutra, In Living Color

Architecture & Interiors

neutra_001Architecture buffs curious about what it may actually feel like to live inside a Richard Neutra-designed home can steal a voyeuristic thrill via photographer Jason Madara’s lush visual essay on this southern California Neutra houseimages that illustrate exactly why Neutra’s Mid-Century sensibilities continue to beguile a half century later.

All the requisites are herethe horizontal profile, open-plan layout, walls of glass, proximity to the outside worldbut what resonates is the house’s burnished warmth and relative modesty. No soaring ceilings and dramatic volumes in this gem; accessible proportions, material richness, and room for intimate communion are vividly on displayoffering a refreshing contrast to 21st Century opulence. No wonder we can’t keep from looking back.neutra_009neutra_006neutra_008neutra_011neutra_002neutra_005jm-neutra-and-frey-04neutra_010
