Case Study House #13, "Alpha" (unbuilt)
Richard Neutra’s Case Study House #13, “Alpha”, and its companion house, CSH #6, “Omega, were designed for families living on adjacent lots. For the layout and design of CSH #13, Neutra placed an emphasis on the social and leisure activities of the hypothetical inhabitants who were a couple with three children. He included a large outdoor patio area and a detached lath house for the children of the two families. Large sliding glass walls throughout the home allowed for the interior to open up easily to the outdoor areas. Neutra also included many innovative features such as a toilet for each bedroom and shelving and storage units devoted to specific household appliances and tools.
