Richard Neutra, Architect: The Hailey Residence, 1959. The Neutra office achieved some of its most creative architectural solutions when confronted with the necessity of making compact space function comfortably and efficiently through varied social circumstances. Success in this endeavor at the Hailey Residence has been brilliantly achieved through a plan which opens private space to public space. Listed on the tax rolls as two bedrooms & two baths, a soft mobile wall, when open, allows for a generous den off the living-dining area. Expansion is further enhanced by opening Neutra’s typical oversize mobile glass wall to the outdoor deck, and view to the Hills beyond Cahuenga Pass. Visual expansiveness is accentuated, without compromising privacy, by opening a vertical glassed in sliver of the master bedroom wall at the perimeter. Improvements include central air-conditioning, and a small office, control temp wine cellar & laundry constructed within lower undeveloped space.
