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. The Reunion 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. In respect to the Neutras advancing age, some changes are being made. In lieu of the 2 hr window, the tours will be accomplished within the one hour; 2 to 3. Opportunities to purchase select Neutra Books is also contemplated on these occasions. Reserve your space early; there is a limit to how many we can accommodate in one group.
Here will be the new routine: 2-2:15 Registration/check in 2:15-2:30 Orientation talk by Mr. Neutra 2:30-3:00 self guided tours thru house; book signing; discussion. 3:00 Exit. Thanks for visiting!
