Now on the market, one of Los Angeles’ most famous homes. Acknowledged world-wide as a seminal modernist design, Case Study House #21 is arguably Pierre Koenig’s greatest architectural achievement.
A true high point of the Case Study Program, promoted by Arts & Architecture Magazine from 1945 to 1964.
One of the few Case Study homes that was a true prototype in terms of ground-breaking design and use of new materials.
Breathtakingly radical and innovative for its time, the public and private rooms are separated by a central core housing bathrooms and mechanical room.
Koenig’s Case Study House #21 exemplifies the architectural revolution that took place in Los Angeles just after World War II.
In 1997, Koenig restored the residence to its former glory.
The structure is surrounded by water ponds that circulate to the roof and return as fountains.
This home is a true work of art and an important piece of architectural history. Truly incredible!
