One of the nine houses comprising the ‘Neutra Colony’ built incrementally between 1948 and 1961. The Sokol house was the first of the group and is distinctively different from the others. It is also one of the largest of the group, being 2382 square feet. The colony was designed as a ‘posturing group’ that is, ‘the grouping of a team in cooperative action, where each individual posture complements the others and no soulless, mere side-by-side prevails.’ The result is a ‘community with a sense of sensual, animated tranquility, of accomplished sophistication rendered simply by mature hands. Each house is unique.’Sokol House is located at 2242 E. Silver Lake Blvd.(Notes taken from ‘NEUTRA: Complete Works’, published by Taschen Press 2000, by Barbara Mac Lamprecht, Peter Goessel, Editor, with Dion Neuta and Julius Shulman)
