Neutra Intervention

This project is not a restoration, but a renovation that enters into a dialogue with the original  Neutra House. It respects Neutra’s detailing but inserts its own minimalist detailing where  appropriate. It is lovely to see work performed by an architect who revered details as Neutra  did. For a landmark project like this, the owner and architect have to have a common vision;  the new work done exemplified that relationship and takes neutral into the 21st Centrury. A wonderful procession from pavilion to pavilion. It’s a success story of what the architect “did  not do”.
