Real Estate & Architecture in Los Angeles

12221 Dorothy Street in Brentwood


For the first time ever, the Brentwood residence of legendary architect Pierre Koenig, FAIA, hits the market!

Koenig’s personal residence was the culmination of his vision of architecture for the modern era.

Koenig was the architectural genius behind Case Study Houses #21 and #22, two of the most-photographed and chronicled modern homes of that era.

Designed and historically archived as “Koenig House #2” by the L.A. Conservancy, this steel and glass masterpiece features tiered setbacks culminating in a soaring 30-foot 3-story vertical atrium crossed by landings, staircases, and illuminated by full-height clerestory windows.

Meticulously restored, this 3 bed, 2.5 bath home includes a parlor and media/family room.

The ultimate example of an open floor plan, the I-beam steel frame sub-divides the wall panels, vertically and horizontally to define living spaces and levels.

Adjacent to the media/family room is Koenig’s architectural studio, which opens to a courtyard with fountain, music room, and decks.
