Bio-realistic design


Neutras philosophy led him to what became for him typical design features: a terrace separated off from the interior by a sliding glass door allowing the relationship between inside and out to be blurred; by means of low sills or room-height glass walls the interior and exterior of a building is intimately interlinked. Neutra endeavored to blend the house with its grounds. And for this, for instance, he employed reflecting pools or his famous “spider legs”, roof overhangs and balconies that jut out beyond the outside walls.
