Interior of Richard Neutra's Health House-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).
Richard Neutra (1892–1970) was a prophet of clean, crisp modernism, and his houses - most of which were built in California - have inspired countless architects and emboldened preservationists in an area of the country notoriously quick to raze landmarks. He contributed to many architectural designs in other countries during his career but a legendary design is this lean stone-and-glass house known as Neutra’s Pescher house in Wuppertal, Germany: built five years before his death.
