Whoever did this to a Richard Neutra should be ashamed of themselves.....what a mess.

I'd also argue that what is posted here was not designed by Richard Neutra

As a "fixed up" modern house in Sherman Oaks it's not bad. A Neutra it's not and never was. It is not listed in Appendix B of Thomas Hines book: Richard Neutra and the Search for Modern Architecture. At least not in my 1982 edition. It could be related by being by his son or someone else working (or had worked) in the Neutra office.

The story I was told on the "Miesianesque" Modern minimalist box cantelievered homes that hang over Beverly Glen canyon - on Oakfield Drive were indeed originally conceptually designed by Richard Neutra. However, before they were originally built and sold back in the 1960s, there were disagreements with the developer about how they were to be constructed. Neutra disowned the project and/or asked for his name to be removed from the homes.

After the '94 earthquake - I believe that at least one fell down the hill!!! Perhaps Neutra knew something was amiss.

there are walls of glass and some beams visible.
honestly - most of them don't even look this clean. this looks actually salvageable compared to many others :|
