Stahl House, Los Angeles

(50+ reviews on the web)
Landmark Tourist Spot
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.

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.

  • I absolutely love this place! . First of all let me tell you, it is NOT very big but its so pretty and full of random Japanese things and restaurants to go and explore. Also some corean ones. Its a fun place to go if you like Japanese culture, there are some stores with fun activities like kawaii photo booths for your friend and you. The restaurants I havenĀ“t had the chance to taste but I did try some interesting snacks. Its a fun and cute place to go to on a weekend with family or friends.
  • I Love this house! The best view in the Hollywood Hills. Historical house 22..Awww
  • its realy wierd didn't like it a lot
  • Great staff and amazing place. A must visit if you're nearby as photos do not do this house justice
  • Beautiful house! A must see! I recommend the evening visit with the sunset. The house has been staged by DWR and looks perfect, views are sensational! Shari was at the house during our visit and shared so many personal moment in the house. She was so nice and passionate about the house. The two guides were also true mid-century lovers and really knowledgeable. Such a great experience!
