Stahl House, Los Angeles
The Stahl House, aka Case Study House #22, is a modernist styled house in the Hollywood Hills section of Los Angeles, California that was designed by Pierre Koenig. Photographic and anecdotal evidence suggests that the architect's client, Buck Stahl, may have provided an inspiration for the overall structure.To visit Stahl House on your trip to Los Angeles, use our Los Angeles route planner .
Built in 1959 and part of the Case Study Houses program, the house is considered an iconic representation of modern architecture in Los Angeles during the 20th century. It was made famous by a photograph by Julius Shulman showing two women leisurely sitting at a corner of the house with a panoramic view of the city through the floor-to-ceiling glass walls at night. The house was, and is, used in numerous fashion shoots, ad campaigns and five films.
In 2007, the American Institute of Architects listed the Stahl House (#140) as one of the top 150 structures on its "America's Favorite Architecture" list, one of only 11 in Southern California, and the only privately owned home on the list.

An absolutely outstanding exhibit of mid century modern architecture designed and built perfectly for the piece of land it was put on. It is timeless and based on its current value will live on forever. Don't miss it while you still can.
Must see for architects and anyone interested in architecture and LA style. I didn't want to leave. Reserve parking. Or come by taxi.
