KAUFMANN DESERT HOUSE //






So I finally watched that JULIUS SHULMAN documentary Visual Acoustics last night and was so gutted that I did not try to go spy on the KAUFMANN DESERT HOUSE (Neutra 1946) when I was in PS last weekend. Darn it. Dream House. So be it, I will get one of these in my lifetime. The renovation that the current owner had to do is astounding, from removing add ons that were built over the years and restoring it to its authentic state, all with the help of Julius's amazing archive of photographs. Mind blowing and leaves me pondering the real question; how did the previous owners let it go to sh*t... animals.
