Koenig’s Case Study House 22 Home Tours

The Stahl house, designed by architect Pierre Koening in 1960 will be open to visitors for a limited time. The house was built part of the Case Study House experiments for residential housing sponsored by Arts & Architecture magazine, which hired major architects including Charles and Ray Eames, Pierre Koenig and Eero Saarinen, to design and build inexpensive model homes for the housing boom caused by the end of World War II.

There were in total over 30 houses built and no. 22 is without a doubt the most stylish and famous one. Located on a hill in West Hollywood, overlooking downtown LA it features large windows, a pool and design to die for. For anyone who is in or near Los Angeles, don’t miss out on this opportunity to travel back in time to a iconic architectural landmark.
