_Stahl House

_I totallt adore 'Case Study House #22' or as its more commonly known the 'Stahl House'

'Stahl House' is a modernist 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 cantilevered 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 is privately owned and i knew this, but this afternoon I discovered you can rent it for private events - I want a birthday there! Maybe in a few years I'll test the water ;)
