Stahl House, Los Angeles

4.6
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.

  • We were the first time in the steel House and what can we say. Very impressive, impressive and exciting as this House was built in 1958. It was also exciting to see how living in the Hollywood Hills. The woman, who has made the Führund, was the wife of the son of the owners. This made the whole leadership all the more special because she told some stories from experience. About 15 people at the tour were doing what was very very pleasant.

  • 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 haven´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.

Where to stay in Los Angeles

Los Angeles may be synonymous with luxury, but its accommodations include not only some of the most opulent and expensive hotels in the world, but also budget-priced hostels and inexpensive inns. In Los Angeles, a car opens up a world of lodging options, allowing you to stay outside the city proper and still have easy access to most major tourist attractions. If you don't mind splurging, consider Hollywood or Beverly Hills. To save money, stay near the airport or in the eastern suburbs of the city.
