The Stahl House

js1372_big

Isn’t it incredible that one of the most famous (and coolest) houses in LA, The Stahl House (aka Case Study 22), was commissioned and built for only about eleven thousand bucks?   Of course that was back in 1960, when you could get an architect like Pierre Koenig to build you a glass house on a slab of rock that would have otherwise been labeled as “unbuildable.”   Above are two of Julius Shulman’s iconic photographs of the house upon completion, and below is a picture of the house today, still owned and occupied by the Stahl family.

If you’ve always wanted a glass house of your very own – check out the IT House, a not-too-unreasonably-priced glass and vinyl prefab from Taalman Koch that is pretty darn snazzy.

  2. so amazing. I know it’s been in plenty of movies but I always remember it as John Stewart’s house in “Playing by Heart”

Talk to me. Please. I'm almost always alone or with a toddler.
