Stahl House, Los Angeles
(4.7/5 based on 40+ reviews on the web)
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.

  • Visit a house icon of modernism Californian, not to be missed if you are passionate about. Book several weeks in advance, the visit of the evening is particularly sumptuous to the sunset over Los Angeles. Read all warnings and instructions before the visit (arrived 15 minutes before, no camera except phone laptop etc). We had the chance to visit with a person of the Stahl family who was able to enhance his point of trivia that is not in the books.

  • 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!
  • You have to book a visit in order to take a tour. Awesome view of Los Angeles from here. The house is very well kept.
  • Go here. A great example of modernist architecture and super lucky to have a case study houses that offers tours. Our guide was great, full of knowledge of the house and the local area. Make sure you book in advance. Amazing view of LA at sunset as a bonus.
  • I here that Los Angeles is filled with Jews and homosexuals ?
