Silver Lake - The L.A. City Council today added the Dion Neutra/Reunion House, designed by modernist architect Richard Neutra, to the city's list of historic landmarks.
Silver Lake -- The Reunion House -- a sleek 1950s hillside home designed by the famed late architect Richard Neutra -- has been nominated as a city cultural-historic monument.
The Los Angeles Cultural Heritage Commission will consider the monument nomination at its November 5 meeting.
Tucked behind a “secret garden” of sorts and overlooking the Silver Lake Reservoir, Reunion House is considered a one-of-a-kind Neutra masterpiece.
“[The house] is a wonderful example of Neutra’s ‘breaking the box’ technique … and other Neutra trademarks,” said Barbara Lamprecht, author of Richard Neutra – Complete Works, who worked on the landmark application on behalf of the Neutra Institute for Survival Through Design. “It shows his mastery in taking a very hilly, narrow site and integrating it with the building.”
