Case Study House #21, one of the most famous houses in Los Angeles, has been recognized world-wide as a pivotal modernist home. It has been, debatably, Pierre Koenig’s supreme steel frame design, and the high point of the Case Study Program promoted by Arts & Architecture Magazine from 1945 to 1964.
The house was one of the few Case Study houses that was a true prototype in terms of revolutionary design and use of new materials.
Impressively radical and ground-breaking for its time, the public and private rooms are separated by a central core housing bathrooms and a mechanical room.
The residence is surrounded by charming water ponds that circulate to the roof and return as fountains.
Koenig’s Case Study House #21 demonstrates the architectural revolution that took place in Los Angeles soon after World War II.
In 1997, Pierre Koenig was asked by the home owner to restore the house to its former glory, and this was completed in 1998.
