In 1953 Richard J. Neutra designed the Hafley House and the adjacent one-story dwelling, the Moore Residence, as an integrated architectural composition that was Modern and characteristically “Neutra,” yet in harmony with the neighborhood’s more traditional architectural character. Treatments were designed to maintain original modern materials and the authenticity of this midcentury resource. The conditions found at the house demand careful restoration. KSMA collaborated with Barbara Lamprecht, M.Arch. to list the house on the National Register of Historic Places as a first step in the project, and also with Griswold Conservation Associates, LLC, and Frank Clark for the restoration.
