Hollywood Hills Architectural Home. Richard Neutra Loring House

The Richard Neutra Loring House is about as good as it gets. Built in 1958, this boxcar-style mid-century modern is an ultra-stylish Hollywood Hills oasis. Set in lush tropical landscaping with a grassy lawn and spectacular views it is a pristine example of Neutra’s work. This architectural home was originally designed for dancer and choreographer Eugene Loring.

The light-filled interior space offers floor-to-ceiling glass and sliding panels, welcoming in the day. Neutra’s structural element, a skeleton of light steel, allow for open plan living and linkage with the landscape.

A classic fireplace serves as the focal point of the living room while acting as a support for the entire structure. Additionally, architectural duo Escher GuneWardena designed a glass-paned primary suite for the compound, expanding the livable space.

The glistening pool and surrounding patio offer rolling canyon views. In a rare instance for hillside properties, there is also a flat private backyard extending the grounds to the edge of the compound.

The detached guesthouse, designed by architect Steven Ehrlich, FAIA, adds the bold geometry of an additional cubist shape, creating a dialog with the existing Neutra boxcar style structure.

In the guesthouse, greenhouse-style windows allow for ample natural light. With a lofted studio space and a complete kitchen, the structure serves as an equal design counterpart to the original form. Minutes from Sunset Blvd, the Loring House captures the essence of Southern California’s architectural history and the ultimate in luxe living.
