Richard Neutra,Kaufmann House,Architecture,1946-48,International Style
This house was built in 1946 by Richard Neutra as a winter home for Frank Llyod Wright. The house represents Neutra’s modernist ideals with its cantilevered roof and tall glass sliding walls. It also has an outdoor sleeping area which Neutra called a “Gloriette”. With his design, Neutra was able to blur the distinction between indoor and outdoor. He used stone mixed with industrial materials such as steel and aluminum, and a variety of colors on the interior set against white, dark, and neutral colors. The outdoor living areas are sheltered by adjustable walls that offer protection against sandstorms.
