The (stack-bond) brick and the wood ceiling evoke Wright---though he didn't lay his brick that way, ever.
This is Neutra at his best, on a par with Nesbitt, the few alterations - terrazzo kitchen, mauling of the bath (wouldn't you like to keep that shower wall clean?) - notwithstanding. The Aalto light fixture above the dining table works.
I see terrazzo as the kind of thorough detailing Neutra would opt for, if his client would pay for it. Do we know that it's not original ? The integral curb, for better or worse, seems a detail from the past.
