This is really special. Dating back to there 1950s, the Richard Neutra-designed J.M. Roberts Residence in West Covina, California, USA has gone up for sale after a two-year restoration. The end result is stunning.
Fans of our sister site WowHaus will be fighting each other to get their hands on this rather impressive coffee table book from Taschen.
Case Study Houses is an intensive retrospective of post-war home design in California. The project, which took place between 1945 and 1966, saw the design of 36 prototype homes, conceived by such luminaries as Charles and Ray Eames, Richard Neutra and Eero Saarinen, that have defined what we now think of as the mid-century modern home. The book is a mammoth tome, packed with photographs from then and now, as well as original documents, extensive floor plans and intricate sketches of each of these iconic buildings. A fascinating insight into one of the most exciting periods in modernist architecture.
Case Study Houses is £135 from Amazon. See the website for more details.
It's the finishing touches that count. So if you've invested time and energy created the perfect mid-century style interior, you may want to invest in these Neutra house numbers for its exterior.
The Neutra stands for the renowned architect Richard Neutra. These numbers are a collaboration between his estate and Design Within Reach and replicate the 1930s originals that Neutra specified for use on the house he'd designed. They're made from weather and corrosion resistant aluminium so should be looking stylish for a good few more years to come.
Expect to count the cost of these numbers though, as each one costs $40.80.
