“Hugo V. Neuhaus, Jr. Residential Architecture 1948 – 1966”


In 1971 Hugo Neuhaus’ work was described by his colleagues, Howard Barnstone and Anderson Todd as “immaculate,  precise, beautifully spacious and consistent from the beginning until now.” His houses, many of which were inspired by the work of Ludwig Mies van der Rohe, demonstrated his ability to create and exhilarating sense of spatial richness using a non-demonstrative architectural vocabulary.
