Los Angeles Architecture Tours: Neutra Office Building: Richard Neutra, 1950. HCM#676
The Neutra Office Building is located on Glendale Boulevard in the Silverlake neighborhood of Los Angeles, and was designed by Richard Neutra, with his son Dion Neutra as Project Architect in 1950. The building is 4,875 square feet and contains an open floor plan with partitioned offices and conference rooms, as well as two residential units in the rear. It is the only surviving, unaltered commercial building designed by Richard Neutra.
The Neutra Office Building is architecturally significant because it was designed by Neutra himself, but is perhaps more significant, historically, because this is where the Neutra architectural practice was based out of from the building’s completion in 1950 through the 1990’s. The United States Embassy in Karachi, Pakistan; the Los Angeles County Hall of Records; and the Orange County Courthouse are just a few of the designs conceived in the Neutra Office Building.
The Neutra Office Building is both a Los Angeles Historic-Cultural Monument (HCM #676) and a National Historic Landmark.
