The Scott House, designed by Pierre Koenig in 1956, is an example of his early work in steel and glass and is one of only five projects predating his Case Study work. This residence is a precursor to the Bailey House (Case Study House #21) built in 1958 and to Koenig’s most well-known work, the Stahl House (Case Study House #22), which was built in 1960. The Scott House is virtually unaltered, and as with all Koenig’s designs, it looks strikingly modern over 50 years later.
The Scott House was designed as a model for postwar suburban life and includes an efficient floor plan that stretches well beyond its 1,429 square feet. Nearly every room opens to the outdoors, and views of the foothills are captured through the massive sliding glass panels.
The home is located in the Descanso Tract, a mostly intact tract of mid-century post and beam homes in Tujunga.
The steel and glass residence is lifted from the street and sited on a 21,250 square foot lot in the foothills of the Angeles National Forest.
The L-shaped design is similar to the iconic Stahl House, with the carport occupying the inside of the L.
Pierre Koenig is one of my favorite architects, and I’m sure he tops many of your lists too! This is an incredible restoration opportunity for the right buyer. If you’d like to see Pierre Koenig’s Scott House in person, email me or call me at 323-775-6305!
