Los Angeles Architecture Tours: Strathmore Apartments: Richard Neutra, 1937. HCM #351


The Strathmore Apartments is a collection of four buildings comprising eight individual apartments, designed by Richard Neutra in 1937. The apartment complex, now condominiums, was named for the street on which it was built – Strathmore Drive, in the Westwood neighborhood of Los Angeles, near UCLA. The provided photographs are of the two street-facing buildings, the remaining two buildings are above and behind these buildings tucked into a hill. The four buildings are clustered around a central garden court.


 Typical of Neutra are the clean lines, lack of ornamentation, white stucco, flat roofs, and the continuous ribbons of windows.


The Strathmore Apartments is now a Los Angeles landmark, designated as Los Angeles Historic-Cultural Monument #351.
