Stunning Pierre Koenig Brentwood Home, the residence of legendary architect Pierre Koenig, FAIA, hits the market for the first time.
Koenig the ‘Rock Star’ of mid-century modernism, and genius behind Case Study Houses #21 and #22, two of the most-photographed and chronicled modern homes of that time.
Designed by architect Pierre Koenig and historically archived as “Koenig House #2” by the Los Angeles Conservancy, this steel and glass masterpiece features tiered setbacks culminating in a soaring 30-foot three-story vertical atrium crossed by landings, staircases and illuminated by full-height clerestory windows.
Meticulously restored, the three bedrooms, two-and-a-half-bathroom home boasts a parlor, media/family room adjacent to Koenig’s architectural studio opening to a courtyard with fountain, music room and decks.
The ultimate example of an open floor plan, the l-beam steel frame sub-divides the wall panels, vertically and horizontally to define living spaces and levels.
Koenig’s private residence was the peak of his vision of architecture for the modern era.
