Richard Neutra in 1937 as five townhouses and two flats, this
structure was poorly converted to post-war educational housing
and then to co-operative housing for 73 UCLA students. The balconies
and glazing on the exterior were removed and restored to their
original configurations while adding full upgrades for disabled
access and seismic codes. The interiors were carefully converted
to dormitory-style housing while maintaining the separate identity
of individual townhouse entries and character defining historic
spaces and finishes. One unit was maintained in its original interior
configuration to document Neutra's original townhouse design.
Built-in desks and storage cabinets were designed and detailed
in the style of Neutra’s original design documents. The Landfair
Apartments are City of Los Angeles Cultural Monument No. 320.
