Joeb Moore’s work in this design/build restoration of a 1959 Richard Neutra house primarily consisted of returning the building to its original state. In the one area where the building required a significant update—a kitchen closed off from the living and dining areas—Moore strove, he says, for “a systematic extension of Neutra’s own thinking.” Replacing the offending partition with a pair of ultra-slim stainless steel columns, Moore inserted a steel-and-white kitchen that is obviously new but also “part of the original language of the house.” Our jury applauded the effort, calling the result “a restrained art form.”
