Long Beach

In 1951, Richard Neutra accepted a commission to design two complimentary neighboring houses in Long Beach. The houses are unusual in that they feature pitched roofs and share their entry and a lawn which stretches unbroken across both lots. LGLA’s landscape renovation maximizes the opportunities afforded by this unique site. It strategically integrates new hardscape and plants with elements retained from the original landscape.

  • Native Bentgrass lawn reduces supplemental irrigation by 50%

  • A second-floor planter features petrified wood and special rocks collected by the Hafleys during road trips across the western United States
