Kaufmann House

Peek at Richard Neutra’s masterpiece of steel, glass, and stone

Removed from Likes

Even though you can only peer at this spectacular private home from the end of its driveway and through a guarded gate, its design aesthetic is undeniable. In the late 1940s, architect Richard Neutra designed this vacation home for the Kaufmann family—clearly no slouches when it came to architecture, since they also commissioned Frank Lloyd Wright to design another icon, Fallingwater. The Kaufmann’s Palm Springs pad is now regarded as one of the most significant buildings of its time. Mixing steel, glass, and Utah stone, the structure blurs the line between indoors and out, blending with the land to complement and celebrate it.
