A House Tour to Inspire:
Richard Neutra’s VDL House in Silver Lake, a National Historic Landmark

Explore modernist architect Richard Neutra’s VDL Studio and Residences, a site comprised of the original 1940 garden house and the main house reconstructed by Neutra and his son and partner, Dion Neutra, after a fire in 1963 destroyed the original.

“Only those, who have lived in a Neutra House, would ever understand how wonderful the daily satisfactions and delights are and how much this experience helps to augment the joy of living,” his wife, Dione Neutra, stated back in 1970. “This is especially the case in this house, which is built on three levels. With the many glass surfaces, mirrors, pools that reflect trees and flowers, every step from room to room, stairway up and down, is an aesthetic and artist experience, which I have the good fortune to enjoy, while I move about the house and watch the changing weather.” (source: archinect.com)

The Neutra VDL Studio and Residences are available for tours thanks to the stewardship of the College of Environmental Design at Cal Poly Pomona, and resident director and professor Sarah Lorenzen.
