In the 1930s the largest concentration of Neutra houses outside Southern California was in the San Francisco Bay Area. Here he was assisted by Otto Winkler. As Neutra’s earliest redwood house, the Darling house acknowledges a kinship with the Bay tradition, as well as with its older Shingle Style neighbors along Woodland Avenue. The Darling House was widely published and was the recipient of many awards. A two story urban house on a small hillside lot, Neutra’s first wood sheathed house is clad in 1x6 horizontal redwood siding, with silver painted steel casement windows. The street elevation is made up of two intersecting rectangular volumes, with an overhanging soffit canopy defining the entrance.
