Description

The Dion Neutra/Reunion House is the only example of a firm designed project on which both father and son worked, but not concurrently. The house was envisioned in 1950, as a hypothetical “grandparent’s house” where family reunions would be held. The senior Neutras lived in it for two years starting in 1964. From 1966 on, it has been the home of Dion Neutra.In 1968, he added an apartment above the garage; 2440A. It is the most private of all the homes in the Neutra Colony; in addition to a selected glimpse of the lake, it is hidden in a forest of trees and ponds, creating an amazing tranquil setting, while masking the undesirable aspects which used to be seen on the street. It was decided to pick some dates, to allow the public to experience another Neutra Interior. Opportunities to purchase select Neutra Books is also contemplated on these occasions.
