Description
Exterior view of the Landfair Apartments, "Modernistic Apartment Houses," located at Ophir Drive and Glenrock. Apartments were built in 1937/1938. Architect: Richard Neutra. "Composed of two one-story, five-room flats on the east side and six more compact two-story apartments to the west, the Landfair was in essence a block of densely packed row houses with staggered set-backs, unit by unit augmenting the effect of separate juxtaposed entities. A stairway led from the living, dining, and kitchen areas on the first floor of each of the smaller units to baths and bedrooms on the second floor, with related stairs leading from each apartment to the roof-garden sundecks. All occupants shared the common back garden." (Hines, Richard Neutra and the Search for Modern Architecture.)
