The King of California Modern...

Our next endeavor into the Case Study world brings us up above Sunset and into the Hollywood hills to grab unparalleled views from behind the steel-glass minimal designs of SoCal modern pioneer Pierre Koenig.
We'll return to the Palisades to start the ride to visit one of Koenig's later works,the Schwartz residence, followed by Koenig's own second residence in Brentwood where his family still resides. From there, we'll make the long trip up to the hills where we'll see Case Study House #22, also known as 'The Stahl House', and Case Study House #21, which is known as the Bailey House. Both Case Study homes have been recently restored, and are in immaculate condition, and on this occassion we get to see one of them from a perspective that very few ever have. Tour begins on the westside @ 10:30 at Clover Park in Santa Monica, and will finish up in the hills with a 4pm tour of CSH #22. Stahl House tour is $20, so dont forget to bring cash! See everyone Saturday.
