Significance: The Lovell (Health) House is a prime example of residential architecture where technology creates the environment. The house is constructed of a light steel framework, filled with standard window components. All parts of the structure were shop fabricated and transported to the steep hillside site where the structural skeleton was erected in just forty hours. Commonly called the Health House because the client was a naturopath, the building complex reveals Neutra's beliefs concerning health and architectural design. The ribbons of wall are of thin concrete sprayed against expanded metal backed by insulation panels acting as forms. The balconies are suspended from the roof frame.
