California Neutra Glamour
Jonathan Anastas was thrilled to find a home in Hollywood Hills designed by Richard Neutra in the early 1940s. It hadn't aged well, so Jonathan decided to update and finesse every detail while honoring the original architecture. Neutra is known for glass walls that bring the indoors out; three sides of the house open to outdoor entertaining spaces with amazing views of canyon and water.
Anastas used other materials to increase the sense of space: floor-to-ceiling monochromatic tile, Roman tub, glass shower divider, glass vessel sink and no cabinetry below the sink. In a small bathroom, using a floor-to-ceiling glass shower door visually expands the space. Otherwise, even a glass half divider on the tub creates an open, airy feeling. Just lose the curtain!
