Stahl House, Los Angeles
(4.7/5 based on 45 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.

  • House of unusual architecture is built on a hillside and has glass walls and pool near the cliff. From the House you have a magnificent view over Los Angeles and breathtaking natural scenery. Visit need to book in advance. The House is half an hour's drive from the city centre and it is interesting to visit. Beautiful panoramic views and wonderful images look at sunset.

  • 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.
