RICHARD JOSEF NEUTRA (1892-1970)

Richard Neutra was born in Vienna, Austria, into a wealthy Jewish family.  Neutra attended the Sophiengymnasium in Vienna until 1910, and he studied under Adolf Loos and Otto Wagner at the Vienna University of Technology from 1910 to 1918).  In 1912 he undertook a study trip to Italy and the Balkans with Ernst Ludwig Freud (son of Sigmund Freud).  He also studied at the University of Zürich and worked briefly for landscape architect Gustav Ammann.  He was briefly the City Architect of Luckenwalde, Germany.  He also worked briefly for architect Erich Mendelsohn in Berlin. 

He married Dione Niedermann, the daughter of an architect, in 1922, and they moved to the US in 1923. At the funeral of Louis Sullivan, Neutra met Frank Lloyd Wright, who hired him in 1924 to work at Taliesin in Wisconsin while Wright was in Japan.  Work ran out and in 1925 Neutra left Taliesin to work in California with Rudolf Schindler.  Neutra and Schindler and their wives shared space in Schindler's house on Kings Road in Los Angeles.  He became a US citizen in 1929.   

Schindler and Neutra collaborated on an entry for the League of Nations Competition of 1927; in the same year they formed a firm with planner Carol Aronovici called the Architectural Group for Industry and Commerce (AGIC).

Neutra and Schindler ended their partnership and co-residency when Neutra got a large commission from one of Schindler's best clients, Philip Lovell.  Neutra and Schindler rarely interacted after that.  When Neutra had a heart attack in 1953, he found himself in the same hospital room as Schindler.  According to Neutra's sons, Schindler and Neutra made peace before Schindler died there of cancer.

Novelist and philosopher Ayn Rand based part of her character “Howard Roark” on Neutra in The Fountainhead. She was the second owner of Neutra's Von Sternberg House.

Between 1927 and 1969, Neutra designed more than 300 houses in California and a few elsewhere. In 1949, Time magazine featured Neutra on its cover (left) and ranked him second only to Frank Lloyd Wright in American architecture. After that, Neutra had all the work he could ever want.  

Neutra coined the term biorealism, which means "the inherent and inseparable relationship between man and nature.”  Neutra hired several young architects who went on to independent success, including Gregory Ain, Harwell Hamilton Harris, and Raphael Soriano.

Neutra visited the NCSU School of Design as a guest lecturer for the first time in 1950.

Architect Robert Evans Alexander (left) joined Neutra and the firm became Neutra and Alexander from 1949-1958.  An agreement was made that Neutra would still design residential commissions within his own independent firm, while larger commercial and institutional commissions would be handled as Neutra and Alexander. Alexander was actively involved in many multi-housing projects but only two single-family houses during that period:  the Hall House and the Governor's house on Guam.  They broke up in 1959 when Alexander and Neutra disagreed over large-scale jobs.

In December 13, 1957, Neutra lectured again at the NCSU School of Design. He led the class in writing a letter to Frank Lloyd Wright:

“Certainly today all serious architectural students are aware of your tremendous contribution to both the fiber and spirit of the art, and almost all are in sympathy with the means you have used in giving your ideas form, even though our own incipient philosophies and forms may be directed in many different ways. With these thoughts in mind, we would like to join with Mr. Neutra in sending you heartfelt greetings at this Christmas season. With respectful wishes-- [Signed by fourteen students.]

In 1965, Neutra formally partnered with architect and son Dion Neutra as Richard and Dion Neutra and Associates. In 1966, he moved back to Vienna, Austria.

He died in Germany in 1970 while in the middle of an argument with a client, according to grandson Justin, who later made a short film about Neutra.  In 1977 he was posthumously awarded the AIA Gold Medal. 

Neutra's autobiography is called Life and Shape

The typeface family Neutraface, designed by Christian Schwartz for House Industries, was based on Neutra’s architecture and design principles.

Sons Dion Neutra and Raymond Neutra both spoke to TMH in 2012.

1923 - The Adolf Sommerfeld Houses, four homes designed while working for Erich Mendelsohn, located along Onkel-Tom-Strasse in Berlin-Zehlendorf, Germany.  Bottom two photos by Raymond Neutra.


 

 

1929 - Neutra’s reputation was firmly established with the Philip M. and Lea Lovell house, aka the Health House, 4616 Dundee Drive, Los Angeles CA. 4807 square feet.   It was the first US steel-framed house built in the International style.  It is also an early example of the use of gunite (sprayed-on concrete). Neutra’s client, who was a fitness expert, wanted the house to symbolize physical well-being. 

Harwell Hamilton Harris was the project architect. Once the house was built, Neutra conducted tours which attracted more than 15,000 visitors.  The house was included in the 1932 Museum of Modern Art exhibit that redefined the International style.  Added to the National Register of Historic Places in 1971.  

Sold in 1973 to Betty L. Topper.  Bottom photo taken during construction:  Neutra is 4th from right, Harwell Hamilton Harris 2nd from right.  The house appeared in the film LA Confidential.  Fourth photo by Ken McCown.  Sixth photo by Luckhous Studios. Betty Topper still lived in the house with her son Ken as of 2006.

1932 - The Van der Leeuw House (aka the VDL Research House or The Neutra House), 2300 Silver Lake Blvd, Los Angeles CA.  A visionary benefactor, Van der Leeuw, loaned Neutra the funds to build a prototype Modernist house and use it to research future design challenges.  Neutra and his family lived here.  In 1940 an innovative garden wing was added that created north and south patios.

Tragically, while Richard Neutra was on a speaking tour, the house burned in 1963.  It was rebuilt 1964-1966. B/W photos are pre-fire provided by Raymond Neutra; color photos are post-fire and include the garden wing and the RIchard and Dion Neutra VDL II wing.  

In 1990 Neutra's wife Dione left the house to the California Poly Pomona College of Environmental Design.  In 1999 it was named one of the World Monument Fund's 100 Most Endangered Sites.  There are several roof leaks which are particularly troublesome - and expensive - and fundraising is ongoing.  Open for public tours and donations.  More info here.

1936 - The Josef Von Sternberg House, 10000 Tampa Avenue, Northridge area of Chatsworth CA. Commissioned 1935.  Movie director Von Sternberg famously insisted that there be no door locks on the bathrooms in case a temperamental actor or actress decided to kill themselves there.  After passing through several owners, Ayn Rand bought the house with her husband, Frank, and lived there from 1943 to 1963.  She called it “unbelievably wonderful.” It became a rental, then went vacant for years.  According to Dion Neutra, the house was destroyed because the homeless had taken up residence. The owner refused to hire security, and in the late 1960's gave Dion a week to find a solution to move it.  Then she went ahead anyway, without further notice, to destroy it.  A housing development was built there several years later.  Photos by Julius Shulman.

1937 - The Grace Lewis Miller House, aka the Mensendieck House, 2311 North Indian Canyon Drive. Palm Springs CA.  This was the first Modernist house in Palm Springs, according to The Palm Springs Modern Committee.  After Miller left Palm Springs in 1943, she rented to military friends stationed in town.  When she returned, the house had fallen into such disrepair she closed up the house and left town.  It was listed for sale in 1947 but did not sell until 1950, when she sold to Charlie Farrell.  He rented it to various tenants and in 1959 converted the garage into a second rental apartment.  Farrell sold it to a family who did awful alterations to break up the space into smaller spaces.  In 1999, Hal Meltzer bought the house initially to restore but flipped a year later.  Sold in 2000 to Catherine Meyler whose first problem was keeping out the crack addicts who seemed to have taken up temporary residence.

 Meyler's restoration efforts included replacing the roof; re-piping and re-plumbing; replacing the electrical system; reframing the living room and garage; installing new insulation in all walls and ceilings; replacing window glass; refinishing the concrete floor; and adding a six-foot wall around the property. She also had a new HVAC system designed to fit seamlessly into the existing structure and commissioned craftsmen to recreate the original built-in furniture in the living room/studio and master bedroom. 

Meyler also put in a guest house addition, designed by Neutra in 1938 but never built.  Meyler had the original plans and it was constructed with little modification.  As she reports, the guest house "stands in the exact spot it was designed for and is enjoyed enormously by friends who previously only had day beds as an option for overnight stays."  Interior color photos by Raymond Neutra.


   

1937 - The George Kraigher House I, aka the Brownsville House, 525 Paredes Line Road, Brownsville TX.  This was the state's first Modernist residence.  Kraigher left for WWII and did not return to Brownsville after the war.  He  sold the house in 1946.  In the 1950s Neutra designed a second house near Litchfield CT where he lived until his death in 1984.  As of 1998, the house had been empty for 20 years and was covered in graffiti.  In 1999, it was purchased by the City Of Brownsville. In 2005, the City leased it for 99 years to the University of Texas at Brownsville and Texas Southmost College, who did a complete restoration (bottom photo).  As of April 2012, maintenance of the building was in question as TSC and UT-Brownsville ended their partnership.

1960 - The David J. and Sarah Coveney House, 301 Hughes Road, Norristown PA near King of Prussia.  Renovations in 1968 and 1977.   For sale 2012-2013.

 The original house had three bedrooms and two baths. Neutra designed a bunk bed in one bedroom, as well as built-ins for the children and planned for the family to add more children. Thaddeus Longstreth, who collaborated with Neutra, supervised the Neutra-planned western extension of the house to accommodate two more bedrooms and another full bath. Longstreth included built-ins in the same style in the expansion. After Neutra's death, Longstreth supervised the design and installation of an artist studio for Sarah Coveney in 1976, bringing the total square footage to 3,217. Neutra designated a place for a swimming pool, which was never installed. Over the 52 years of ownership, the Coveneys have been true curators of Neutra's extraordinary design, faithfully maintaining the house.

1963 - The Maximilian (Milan) and Blanca Roven / Abraham Spiegel Houses, 900 and 910 North Alpine Drive, Beverly Hills CA.  The Rovens (lower lot) and Abraham Spiegel (upper lot) engaged Neutra to design two 6000 sf+ houses starting in 1956. 

However, according to Neutra expert Barbara Lamprecht, several factors ranging from apparently uneasy client relations, questions about the legality of the subdivided lot, and Neutra's two bouts in the hospital, led to the loss of the project.

In 1961, Benno Fischer, a long-time lead project architect for Neutra and now established with his own practice, redesigned the project, based in part on Neutra's original layout, and gleaning high praise from his clients. The houses were built in 1963. The Roven house has changed hands but is still there.  The Spiegel House has been demolished.

1962 - The Samuel and Luella Maslon House, 70-900 Fairway Drive, Rancho Mirage CA. Located at the Thunderbird Country Club, formerly the Tamarisk Country Club, a gated community with no public access.  For unknown reasons, Luella, who died in 2002, resisted placing the house on the National Register of Historic Places, or incorporating restrictions into its title.  The Maslon heirs sold it to Richard J. Rotenberg in 2002 on the promise he would preserve it. Shortly thereafter, he demolished it (middle photos) touching off great controversy among historic preservationists in Southern California -- as the house was in pristine condition.  The building was replaced by the house in the bottom photo, which Neutra's son Dion photographed in 2008.

1962 - The Harold (Harry) Goldman House, 3417 Southern Hills Drive, Des Moines IA.  In October 1961, construction crews unearthed a solid granite, 25-ton boulder near Second and School Streets. The enormous rock mass was the largest rock deposit of its kind ever seen this far south in Iowa (similar deposits have been found in the Marshalltown area). The boulder was a glacial deposit, having been brought down by the ice from someplace in Canada perhaps 200,000 years ago, well prior to Iowa’s last glacier 25,000 to 30,000 years ago. In May of 1962, the huge rock was moved to the Goldman's lawn where it was made available to Drake University’s geology classes for examination and study. Sold to son Thomas C. Goldman.

Beckett finished up these houses and did at least one more very similar house at 2231 Gloaming, Beverly Hills, completed in 1961.

1965 - The BEWO-Bau GmbH Development II, Marienhöhe, Quickborn, Germany.  About 13 miles outside Hamburg.  A dense estate of 67 detached houses; they have been better preserved than the first BEWO development of 1960.  Der Spiegel on 26 August 1964 had an article about the development, which got off to a very difficult start - with only four homes sold 18 months into the development.  The houses were expensive and didn’t sell well. Material and craftsmanship were outstanding, but instead of large representative homes situated on large lots for such an amount of money, Neutra demanded a new thinking from the purchasers, by offering smallish homes tightly packed together, 44 of them even attached, with small private gardens but blocked views. Spiegel wrote that Bewobau had totally overestimated Neutra as a magnet architect, and subsequently cancelled plans for another 422 houses.  For the remaining homes, historic preservation status came through in 2005.  As of 1994, 62 of the homes are supposedly kept “in the Neutra-spirit", only five homes got major alterations.  Interior color photos by Iwan Baan.


1966 - The Ebelin Bucerius House, aka Casa Navegna, Via Val Resa, Brione sopra Minusio, Switzerland.  The landscape architect was Ernst Cramer.  High above Lake Maggiore, House Bucerius has a breathtaking view exploited by Neutra to the fullest. This huge villa, which cost a small fortune to build, was the most elaborate ever erected by Neutra in Europe and is a milestone of his later work. It has been painstakingly and exquisitely restored and renovated. Last two photos by Alberto Flammer and Martin Hesse, respectively.  Color photos by Iwan Baan.


1966 - The Rentsch House, In der Ledi, Wengen 3823 in Lauterbrunnen Switzerland.  The landscape architect was Ernst Cramer.  Commissioned 1964. Built on the outskirts of Wengen with an impressive view of the Eiger-Mönch-Jungfrau mountain massif. Originally designed with a flat roof, Neutra was forced by planning officials to add a gabled roof.  Color photos by Iwan Baan.

1967 - The Paul and Alice Shinoda House, 1124 Camino Del Rio, Santa Barbara CA.  Destroyed by the Painted Cave wildfire in 1991.  The Shinodas chose not to rebuild and sold the land.

1968 - The Walter and Inga Rice House, 1000 Old Locke Lane, on an island in the James River, Richmond VA, donated to the Science Museum of Virginia Foundation in 1996. 6000 square feet. Built by Kayhoe Construction. Neutra's only house in Richmond. 


  

1968 - The Ann and Donald Brown House, 3005 Audubon Terrace NW, Washington DC. Heather Willson Cass designed an addition (bottom left photo) in the early 1990's. 4000 square feet.  Neutra's only house in DC and his last in the United States.  TMH toured it in 2010.


1969 - The Pescher House, Am Freudenberg 75, Wuppertal, Germany.  Commissioned 1968.  Well-preserved in original condition, similar to the Rentsch House. Bottom photo by Iwan Baan.


1969 - The Marcel Delcourt House, 18bis Avenue General de Gaulle, Croix, Nord-Pas-de-Calais, France.  Neutra's last house, and his only house in France.  Now surrounded by a high wall.  Photos by Iwan Baan. 


1970 - The Stettfurt House, aka the Jürgen Tillmann House, Thurgau, Switzerland.  Begun as a low-budget project drawn by his son Dion, and completed (after a break during which financing was unavailable) by Honegger, a Swiss architect who previously worked with Neutra.  Even so, a few months before he died, Neutra requested in a letter to be referred to as the home's original designer.  Sold to a second owner, an attorney.  Sold in the late 1980's to the Bachmanns, third owners.  The interior has been renovated.  Photo by Iwan Baan.


2011 - A house for sale in Madrid is listed as designed by Richard Neutra.  However, Neutra never designed any houses in Spain.  TMH alerted noted Neutra expert Barbara Lamprecht.  She commmunicated with the family of the owner.  According to the owner's nephew, "This project was done in the 60's for the soldiers of the American base in Torrejon de Ardoz, that is why it was called Aneutra."  The real estate listing agent saw this term and made an incorrect assumption.  Case closed.
