La Canada Mid Century Home
by Pierre Koenig – The Squire House 1953
This La Canada Mid Century home is a unique illustration of master modernist Pierre Koenig’s early work.
Built in 1953, the Squire House exemplifies his experimental structural steel system and palette of industrial materials that he later used for his famed Case Study houses #21, 1958, and #22, 1959.
Koenig masterfully turned various versions of steel, concrete, and glass into real estate glamour.
Koenig’s careful consideration of the site brings nature and architecture together with a light, graceful touch that characterizes his work.
Walls of glass comprise the entire rear elevation, opening the entire house to a private world of rugged canyons up close, pines, and hiking trails.
