‘Case Study’ Architect Pierre Koenig’s Own Modernist House Is Selling for Nearly $5 Million

The airy, light-filled modern home was built in 1985 and is notable for its extensive use of steel, newsletter sign-up, daily briefing.

The personal Los Angeles residence of Pierre Koenig—a mid-century architect behind some of the city’s iconic Case Study Houses, including one of the most recognizable homes in the U.S.—has hit the market for $4.995 million.

“Pierre Koenig is one of the greatest architects of our time and created the most photographed home in Los Angeles, the Stahl House , so to own his residence is a trophy unto itself,” said Dalton Gomez of Christie’s International RE | AKG, who is handling the sale of the property with colleague Aaron Kirman.

Koenig built the steel home—historically archived as “Koenig House No. 2” by the L.A. Conservancy—for himself and his wife, Gloria, in 1985. Staggered over three-levels, the light-filled three-bedroom residence has an open floor plan with rooms that either flow together or are divided by glass walls. At its center is a three-story atrium, crisscrossed by walkways and staircases that connect the two sides of the upper floors.   

The house “is extremely unique because of the all-metal infrastructure,” Gomez said. 

Across its 3,000 square feet, the home has a vast living area, a modern kitchen, a dining space and a library nook. 

“The bedrooms open up to the living space, which then opens to the courtyard, which gives the home this type of jewelry-box feel,” Gomez said. “The front room was used as [Koenig’s] office,” he added, and the space is still intact. “It’s interesting to think what properties and work he created in that office.” 

For potential buyers, the most appealing part of the home could be that “it comes with bragging rights that it was chosen by Pierre to be the space he lived and created in for so many years,” he said.

The house remained in Koenig’s family for some time after his death, and was restored by his stepchildren. It last changed hands in 2017 for $3.46 million. The owners couldn’t be reached for comment. 

Koenig, who was also a professor of architecture at the University of Southern California, died in 2004 at the age of 78. His “sleek glass-and-steel houses became emblems of the progressive values of Postwar suburbia,” the Los Angeles Times wrote in his obituary. 

He was integral in the creation of the city’s Case Study Houses, which were experiments in American residential architecture sponsored by the now-defunct Arts & Architecture magazine.

Prominent architects like Koenig, along with Charles and Ray Eames, A. Quincy Jones and Ralph Rapson, were challenged to design and build replicable, inexpensive and efficient model homes as the U.S faced a housing boom caused by the return of millions of soldiers following the end of World War II.

Koenig’s Case Study House No. 21 , the Bailey House, and No. 22, the Stahl House, are possibly the most famous of them all.

The Stahl House, which in 2013 was listed on the National Register of Historic Places, was built in 1959 and has since been the backdrop in numerous fashion shoots, films, and advertising campaigns. It was made famous by a Julius Shulman photograph showing two women relaxing in a corner of the house with a panoramic view of the city through the floor-to-ceiling glass walls behind them.

The glass and steel-framed modernist home was designed in 1957, as part of Arts & Architecture magazine’s ‘Case Study’ experiments in low-cost building techniques. In recent years the two-bedroom property – l isted for $3.6m with Pacific Union International – has been home to design gallery Seomi International’s exhibitions.

There is 1,280 sq ft of space inside the property, also known as Bailey House, which was restored by Koenig himself in the late 1990s. Glass walls look out onto the surrounding trees and cacti of Laurel Canyon, while inside minimal interiors offer a blank canvas for future owners to put their stamp on.

Craig Ellwood’s Case Study House No. 16 seeks $3 million in Bel-Air

  • Show more sharing options
  • Copy Link URL Copied!

For some of the most stunning Midcentury architecture in L.A., look no further than the Case Study House series. Created by Arts & Architecture magazine after World War II, the program employed some of the era’s most noted architects to explore aesthetic and affordable housing prototypes.

Architects including Richard Neutra and Pierre Koenig mocked up 36 designs, and roughly two dozen were built. No. 16, a floating glass pavilion built by Craig Ellwood, just hit the market for $2.995 million.

It’s one of three homes Ellwood designed for the series and the only one still intact, according to the Los Angeles Conservancy. The other two (such as the onetime Beverly Hills residence of baseball great Hank Greenberg ) have been altered through remodels.

A striking concoction of steel, concrete and glass, the single-story home sits on a flat lot with sweeping canyon views. Translucent glass panels shroud the property from the street, while an exposed steel exterior frames floor-to-ceiling walls of glass throughout the 1,664-square-foot floor plan.

Inside are two bedrooms, two bathrooms and an indoor-outdoor open floor plan. A natural rock fireplace anchors the space, extending through glass walls onto a covered patio. Outdoor lounges and lawns complete the landscaped grounds.

Aaron Kirman, Dalton Gomez and Weston Littlefield of Aaron Kirman Group at Compass hold the listing.

A few other Case Study homes have surfaced for sale as of late. In 2017, actress Kristen Wiig bought No. 10 in Pasadena for $2.96 million. No. 21 , a glass box perched in the Hollywood Hills, sold for $3.26 million earlier this year.

In 1961, prolific TV writer & composer Stephen Lord (CHiPs, Fantasy Island, etc.) commissioned mid-century modernist architect Richard Neutra to design a home on a 26,500-square-foot promontory lot with jetliner views toward the Santa Monica Mountains overlooking the San Fernando Valley and beyond. The property is located off Mulholland Drive at the end of a private road. Husband & wife architect team, Dora Chi & Erik Amir discovered the single-floor home in 2021 gutted and dilapidated. Not much is known about this house but the bones of the house are classic Neutra: a floating roof plane sliding over smooth stucco vertical planes with strong horizontal lines, centralized freestanding fireplace with a floating hearth, and walls of glass framing views. Working together with Lord's daughters, the architects renovated the property to restore Neutra's design, modernize the kitchen and bathrooms. They also added a contemporary pavilion featuring a guest house and deck that appears to float over the hillside. (Ricardo DeAratanha / Los Angeles Times)

Case Study House #16 Hits the Market!

Case Study House #16 Hits the Market!

Vintage mid-century modern homes are as popular today as they were when built in the 1950s and ‘60s, and some more than others. Arts & Architecture magazine’s post-war Case Study Houses, for example, rarely come up for sale and when they do are usually snapped up by affectionados almost as quickly as the listing goes into print. Will that be the case now that the rare offering of Case Study House #16 has hit the market? It is now for sale for the first time in half a century and is priced at $2.995 million.

When World War II ended and the American troops were returning home, it was the start of the baby boom and a monumental housing shortage. Well known architects in the country were asked to design simple, affordable homes that could be built enmasse. The magazine Arts & Architecture put out a challenge to architects that included Richard Neutra, Raphael Soriano, Craig Ellwood and Ray Eames.

The Case Study Houses were numbered 1 through 28 and two apartments were included. They were built from 1945 sporadically through 1966. Thirteen were never built and from the ones that were, at least three were later demolished. A couple of them have been renovated rather than restored, and the rest are lived in and cared for today. Most of the homes were built in Los Angeles, one in San Rafael, California and one in New Jersey.

Number 16 was the first of three Case Study Houses designed by Craig Ellwood. Completed in 1952 in Bel Air, the house was innovative in its use of exposed steel-structural framing and floor-to-ceiling glass walls to optimize the views and open to the grounds making it feel twice the size. Ellwood was actually an engineer rather than an architect, and placed a lot of emphasis on the stability of the structure using steel, glass and concrete built on a slab. The 1,664-square-foot home with two bedrooms and two baths is just as contemporary today as when it was completed in 1953. The living room has a dramatic stone fireplace set into the glass wall that extends beyond it into a terraced area. Set into mature landscaping, the house appears to rest on a cushion of greenery.

For the first time in 50 years, the historic Case Study House #16 is for sale in Bel Air, Los Angeles, California. Priced at $2.995 million, the listing agents are Aaron Kirman, Dalton Gomez and Weston Littlefield, all with Aaron Kirman Group at Compass, Los Angeles.

Designed by acclaimed architect Pierre Koenig, the Bailey House is a steel-and-glass residence located in the lovely neighborhood of Laurel Canyon. Constructed between 1956-58 for psychologist Walter Bailey and his wife, Mary, the celebrated architect used the project as an exploration into steel's potential as a building material—trying to find the balance between keeping costs down while maintaining high-quality finishes.

Nestled into its Laurel Canyon location, the home overlooks a shallow rectangular pool.

Meg Ryan and Dennis Quaid’s former co-op hits the market for $7.4 million

The Upper East Side apartment where Meg Ryan and Dennis Quaid raised their son, Jack, is for sale. The Hollywood couple sold their 12th floor co-op at 1136 Fifth Avenue in 2001, the New York Post reported , the same year they divorced. 

Listed for $7.4 million with Compass agent Karen Kelley , the 3,000-square-foot residence features a 25-foot gallery that opens out to the living and dining rooms, as well as a separate wing with three bedrooms. Other highlights include a fireplace, eat-in chef’s kitchen, and spacious windows that look out onto Central Park and the Reservoir.

Completed in 1925, 1136 Fifth Avenue was designed by prolific architect George Frederick Pelham, who also developed the St. James House and Hudson View Gardens. Nearly a century later, residents still enjoy a full-time doorman and elevator operator.

A New York media power couple are offering their Hamptons getaway for $25 million

Chris Mitchell and Pilar Guzman are media royalty: Mitchell is an ex-publisher of Vanity Fair and GQ , while Guzman is a former editor-in-chief of Condé Nast Traveler and current editorial director for Oprah Daily. The couple are also accomplished designers, having coauthored Patina Modern: A Guide to Designing Warm and Timeless Interiors last fall. So when they put a seven-bedroom Hamptons estate up for sale, it merits attention.

The 9,000-square-foot property is located in East Hampton’s exclusive Georgica Association (known to locals simply as the Settlement ). A new build, it includes custom mahogany windows and doors, white oak and Belgian stone floors, and Waterworks and Lefroy Brooks fixtures. There’s also a 50-foot heated pool, a pool house, and an adjacent carriage house.

“It’s the rare new build that respects the integrity of the original late 19th-century style while not missing a beat on modern luxury and livability,” says Mitchell. Indeed, the property is already integrated with Wi-Fi transmitters, Sonos speakers, and Lutron lighting technology.

It could also come fully furnished. “We would entertain and offer the furnishings if the buyer fell in love with the whole lifestyle we’ve created here,” Mitchell adds.

The family had originally intended to make the Cottage Avenue residence their vacation home for the next 5 or 10 years. But they fell in love with a carriage house nearby and decided to take it on as their next project. “So we switched gears and decided that we would sell Cottage sooner than originally planned,” says Mitchell.

Beate Moore and Frank Newbold of Sotheby’s International Realty have the listing .

A historic Case Study house from 1948 is available for $11.9 million

In the mid-20th century, Arts & Architecture magazine commissioned America’s preeminent architects—including Richard Neutra, Eero Saarinen, and Charles and Ray Eames—to design and construct inexpensive model homes to address the post-WWII housing boom. Not all of the imagined 36 Case Study Houses were built, and some have been demolished or completely remodeled. Of the 20 that remain, most are in LA. Now architecture buffs have a rare opportunity to own one.

Designed by Rodney Walker and completed in 1948, Case Study House #18, also known as the West House, was built on the same street in Pacific Palisades as the Eames House and Neutra’s Stuart Bailey House . The 1,700-square-foot wood-frame includes two bedrooms, a garden room, and a combined living-dining area with a two-sided floor-to-ceiling brick fireplace faced with copper. Walker took advantage of the gorgeous locale by strategically orienting the house toward the Pacific Ocean and including full-length glass panels, many of which slide open to outdoor terraces.

“These projects enlisted the most prominent architects of their time to design and construct efficient model homes that would shape the future of housing in the United States following World War II,” says the listing , which is held by Aaron Kirman, Ray Ross, Charlene Durarte, Fran Chavez, and Andrew Spitz, all of AKG Christie’s International Real Estate.

Need more space? The home’s half-acre plot can be developed to include a secondary structure designed by Seattle architect Tom Kundig . (Plans are included with purchase.)

A glamorous L.A. home lists for nearly $7 million

A colonial-style estate designed by renowned Los Angeles architects Sumner Spaulding and Walter Webber has just landed on the market for $6.879 million. Though each were acclaimed in their own right, the pair collaborated several times: This Shannon Road estate was built in 1928, the same year Webber and Spaulding finished work on silent film star Harold Lloyd’s 44-room mansion, Greenacres. (Catalina Casino, their Art Deco masterpiece on Santa Catalina Island, was finished the following year.)

Hidden from the street in L.A’s Los Feliz neighborhood, 3659 Shannon Road includes a library, formal dining room, living room, family room, and primary suite with balcony on the main floor, with six additional bedrooms and an office upstairs. Many original details have been preserved, including the hardwood floors, moldings, three fireplaces, and a dumbwaiter. An outdoor area features a pool, spa, and another fireplace, as well as an outdoor kitchen and semi-covered dining patio.

3659 Shannon Road is listed with Konstantine Valissarakos of Nourmand & Associates and Rick Yohon of Sotheby’s.

Silverstein closes on 55 Broad Street conversion

Silverstein Properties and Metro Loft Management have completed their acquisition of 55 Broad Street in New York’s Financial District, clearing the way for one of the largest office-to-residential conversions in New York history. The companies purchased the 30-story, 410,000-square-foot tower from the Rudin Family for $172.5 million and will convert it into 571 market-rate apartments over the next two years.

“As our local and national policymakers look to conversions as a critical way to generate new housing, downtown continues to be a model mixed-use neighborhood, offering lessons to cities across the country,” Silverstein CEO Marty Burger said in a statement.

Designed by Emery Roth & Sons, 55 Broad Street opened in 1967 and served as the headquarters for Goldman Sachs until 1983. CetraRuddy has been tapped to oversee the conversion.

“We took advantage of 55 Broad’s unique form with setbacks that enabled us to design a variety of apartment sizes and types ranging from efficient units to loftlike layouts with generous terraces,” says John Cetra, CetraRuddy’s founding principal. When completed, the building will include layouts ranging from studios to three-bedroom apartments, as well as a private club, coworking space, and 45-foot-long rooftop pool.

In recent years, supply-chain issues, construction shortages, and the rise of remote work have seen adaptive reuse projects like 55 Broadway outpacing new apartment construction. Office-to-apartment conversions hit a record high during the pandemic, according to data analysis firm Yardi Matrix , with 11,090 apartments delivered in 2020 and 2021—a 43% uptick compared to the previous two-year time period.

The Treadwell takes a lap on the Upper East Side

Dart Interest and Zeckendorf Development have unveiled new renderings of the Treadwell, a 28-story residential tower going up at 249 East 62nd Street between Second and Third Avenues in Manhattan. Designed by INC Architecture & Design, the Art Deco–inspired building is expected to be completed near the end of 2023 and will include 66 units, from studio to three-bedroom layouts, with prices ranging from from $1.1 to $4.5 million.

Each floor will house two to four residences, according to New York YIMBY , with upper units offering glass-enclosed balconies and floor-to-ceiling windows to maximize views of Midtown and the East River.

The Treadwell family owned the land between East 61st and East 62nd in the early 1800s, and the Treadwell Farm Historic District is one of New York’s oldest. Most of the buildings on the block are four-story row houses built between 1868 and 1875.

Foreign real estate investments take a hit

Foreign investment in US real estate has dropped to its lowest level in over a decade, according to a new report from the National Association of Realtors that points to lower housing inventory and higher borrowing costs over the past two years. 

Between April 2022 and March 2023, international buyers bought 84,600 homes across the US—a decline of 14.2% from the 12 months prior and the lowest rate since NAR began tracking such data in 2009. In that time frame, foreign buyers spent a total of $53.3 billion on US residences, a drop of almost 10% from the prior year. 

But there’s hope on the horizon, according to NAR chief economist Lawrence Yun. “Recovering international travel following the end of the pandemic will bring more foreign transactions in coming months and years,” Yun said in a press release.

For the 10th year in a row, Chinese buyers topped the list, representing 13% of all foreign investors, followed by those from Mexico (11%) and Canada (10%). Florida was far and away the most popular destination, representing nearly a quarter of all international sales. California and Texas (with 12% each) tied for second, and Arizona, Illinois, and North Carolina landed in third (with 4% each). According to NAR, half of foreign buyers are using their properties as an investment or vacation home.

Hundreds of rural hospitals are in danger of shutting down, study finds: ‘at risk of closure’.

Thanks for contacting us. We've received your submission.

Hundreds of hospitals in rural areas of the US are at risk of closure, according to new data from Chartis, a Chicago health care advisory services firm.

A total of 141 rural hospitals have closed since 2010 — while another 453 are “at risk of closure,” according to a press release.

The seven states with the most hospitals vulnerable to closures include Texas (45), Kansas (38), Nebraska (29), Oklahoma (22), North Carolina (19), Georgia (18) and Mississippi (18), as listed in Becker’s Hospital Review.

In Florida, Tennessee and Nebraska, more than 41% of rural hospitals are at risk of closure.

Between 31% to 40% of rural hospitals are at risk in Utah, South Dakota, Kansas, Oklahoma, Alabama, North Carolina and South Carolina.

In Wyoming, Texas, Louisiana, Arkansas, Mississippi and Georgia, between 26% and 30% of rural hospitals are in danger of closing, the report stated.

Factors impacting closure risk

The analysis identified seven factors that have the biggest impact on a hospital’s risk of closure.

Two of those were the number of years a hospital has been operating without a profit and the amount of net patient revenue.

The study also looked at the hospital’s average number of inpatients during the year — and the average daily need for skilled nursing facilities.

The remaining three factors include the hospital’s reliance on inpatient revenue, its share of Medicare outpatient charges and each hospital’s case mix index.

Among the rural hospitals that are still operating, an increasing number are dropping essential health services, including cancer treatments and maternal care, the data showed.

Approximately 43% of rural hospitals are operating at a financial deficit, Chartis found.

“As the urgency of the pandemic disappears, the return of policy-driven reimbursement cuts, population health disparities and the nurse staffing crisis will apply renewed pressure to the rural health safety net,” said Michael Topchik, national leader of The Chartis Center for Rural Health, in the release.

How closures impact patients

Dr. Kenneth Perry, an emergency department physician in South Carolina, was not involved in the Chartis analysis but noted that rural hospitals are extremely important for the country’s health care system. 

“There are many patients who do not have access to primary care, but are within close enough proximity to rural hospitals, and obtain most of their care within those hospital systems,” he told Fox News Digital.

“As economic pressures have increased for hospitals in the last few years, it has become increasingly difficult for these hospitals to stay financially profitable.”

Between the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid and private insurers, hospitals have faced “ever smaller” reimbursement amounts, Perry noted.

“Even with lowering reimbursement, operating costs have skyrocketed,” he added. “This makes it very difficult for rural hospitals to be profitable enough to stay open.”

In areas where hospitals are forced to shutter, Perry warned that many patients will lose not just hospital care, but also access to emergency departments. 

“Many patients, specifically low or under insured patients, use the emergency department as a source of primary care,” he said.

“With the closure of these hospitals, many patients will lose access to all of their medical care.”

Without a feasible solution, Perry said, many patients will be left without access to emergency services and primary care.

Impact of REH designation

Chartis’ new report aimed to determine the potential impact of the Rural Hospital Emergency (REH) designation.

It was enacted by Congress in Dec. 2020 as a means of ensuring emergency medical services in rural hospitals that may lack the resources to offer them.

When a hospital is designated as an REH, it is able to provide emergency department services, observation care and potentially some outpatient services as long as the patient’s stay doesn’t exceed an average of 24 hours, according to the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services website.

“For some hospitals, our data model suggests the REH designation will serve as a desperately needed relief valve to avoid closing and provide a significant reversal in fortune for the vulnerable communities they serve,” Topchik said in the release. 

“But the decision to convert is highly nuanced, and as a result, we expect to see a relatively small number of hospitals embrace REH.” 

There are 389 rural hospitals that Chartis identified as “most likely” to consider converting to REH status, with 77 designated as “ideal candidates.”

Fox News Digital reached out to Chartis and the American Hospital Association requesting additional comment.

Buried treasure: The splendor of the Moscow Metro system

Owen hatherley the calvert journal january 29, 2013.

. Reposted from  The Calvert Journal , a daily briefing on the culture and creativity of modern Russia.

. Post-Communist underground stations in Moscow, like the recently completed Pyatnitskoye shosse, are still, very visibly, Moscow Metro stations. Regardless of the need or otherwise for nuclear shelters, they’re still buried deep in the ground; ubiquitous still is the expensive, laborious, but highly legible and architecturally breathtaking practice of providing high-ceilinged vaults with the trains leaving from either side. There have been attempts at “normal” metro lines, like the sober stations built under Khrushchev, or the “Light Metro” finished in 2003, but they didn’t catch on. Largely, the model developed in the mid-1930s continues, and not just in Moscow — extensions in Kiev or St Petersburg, or altogether new systems in Kazan or Almaty, carry on this peculiar tradition. Metro stations are still being treated as palaces of the people, over two decades after the “people’s” states collapsed. This could be a question of maintaining quality control, but then quality is not conspicuous in the Russian built environment. So why does this endure?

case study house for sale

. The original, 1930s Moscow Metro was the place where even the most skeptical fellow travellers threw away their doubts and surrendered. Bertolt Brecht wrote an awe-filled poem on the subject, “The Moscow Workers Take Possession of the Great Metro on April 27, 1935,” dropping his habitual irony and dialectic to describe the Metro workers perusing the system they’d built on the day of its opening. At the end, the poet gasps, his guard down, “This is the grand picture that once upon a time/ rocked the writers who foresaw it” — that is, that here, at least, a dream of “Communism” had been palpably built. It was not an uncommon reaction, then or now, nostalgia notwithstanding. The first stations, those Brecht was talking about, were not particularly over-ornamented, especially by the standards of what came later, but their extreme opulence and spaciousness was still overwhelming. Stations like Sokolniki or Kropotkinskaya didn’t bludgeon with classical reminisces and mosaics. Yet three things about the underground designs created by architects Alexei Dushkin, Ivan Fomin, Dmitry Chechulin et al were unprecedented in any previous public transport network, whether Charles Holden’s London, Alfred Grenander’s Berlin or Hector Guimard’s Paris. First, the huge size of the halls, their high ceilings and widely-spaced columns; second, the quality of the materials, with various coloured marbles shipped in from all over the USSR; and third, the lighting, emerging from individually-designed, surreal chandeliers, often murkily atmospheric, designed to create mood rather than light.
