Stahl House, Los Angeles

#36 of 60 in Sightseeing in Los Angeles
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.

  • The Stahl House was built in a modern style, with a sensational ride around the House or by the great view of Los Angeles, since it lies at the top of the Hollywood Hills. A warning, the visit has to be booked well in advance, since it happens on specific days and usually always full.

  • 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.
