Corwin House in Connecticut, USA
5 bedrooms; $3.2m via Compass
Richard Neutra is best known for his pioneering modernist buildings in California, but he did complete a small cache of projects outside the Golden State with his practice, including this rare East Coast property in Connecticut. The Corwin family commissioned the five-bedroom family home in Weston, and it’s now being offered for sale for the first time ever. Find out more.
Lauck House in New Jersey, USA
Princeton is a pilgrim spot for Modernist architecture buffs, and Marcel Breuer’s Lauck House is among its most coveted gems. The revolutionary property was built in 1950 and is modelled on the Hungarian architect’s design for the 1949 exhibition on modern architecture at the Museum of Modern Art in New York. Lauck House is fresh from a top-to-toe renovation that’s returned it to its original state, down to the midcentury colour scheme. Take a peek inside.
Brillhart House in Florida, USA
2 bedrooms; $1.9m via Compass Group
Practice Brillhart House designed the eponymous Miami dwelling, Brillhart House. It’s inspired by Florida modernism and has clean lines and vast amounts of glass to maximise the building’s connection to its lush setting. To continue this theme, a variety of woods have been used across the interiors to hone a natural vibe. See more.
