Neutra’s Kronish House saved?


Richard Neutra’s Kronish House has been temporarily spared from a planned demolition until October 10 to give the local community time to present a restoration plan. In April, the historic Beverly Hills house was sold as a $14 million ‘tear down’ but pressure from the  community as well as the LA Conservancy, American Institute of Architects and the National Trust for Historic Preservation, stalled the demolition plans of the new owners. To stay up-to-date on this story, follow the Neutra Institute for Survival Through Design blog and biography of media coverage. Take a photographic tour (via Curbed Los Angeles) of the Kronish House as it exists today in its run-down condition.
