Lbj Company Case Study #22 The Stahl House

This article is about the historic house in Los Angeles, California. For the historic house in Bayamón, Puerto Rico, see Dr. Agustín Stahl Stamm House.

The Stahl House (also known as Case Study House #22) is a modernist-styled house designed by architect Pierre Koenig in the Hollywood Hills section of Los Angeles, California. Photographic and anecdotal evidence suggests that the architect's client, Buck Stahl, may have provided an inspiration for the overall structure.[2] In 2013 it was listed on the National Register of Historic Places.[3]

History[edit]

Built in 1959 as part of the Case Study Houses program, the house is considered an iconic representation of modern architecture in Los Angeles during the twentieth century. It was made famous by a Julius Shulman photograph showing two women leisurely sitting in a corner of the house with an eventide panoramic view of the city through floor-to-ceiling glass walls.[4] The house has been used in numerous fashion shoots, films, and advertising campaigns. Films include Smog (1962); The First Power (1990); The Marrying Man (1991); Corrina, Corrina (1994); Playing by Heart (1998), where it was used as the home of Jon Stewart’s character; Why Do Fools Fall In Love (1998); Galaxy Quest (1999), as the home of Tim Allen's character; The Thirteenth Floor (1999); Nurse Betty (2000); and Where the Truth Lies (2005). Television shows include Adam-12; Emergency!; and Columbo. The house is prominently featured in the music videos for I Don't Wanna Stop (2003) by ATB, "Missing Cleveland" by Scott Weiland, and also "Release Me" by Wilson Phillips. A look-alike was also included in the 2004 video game Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas as one of the safehouses players can buy.

In 1999, the house was declared a Los Angeles Historic-Cultural Monument.[5] 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 eleven in Southern California, and the only privately owned home on the list.[6]

The house was included among the ten best houses in Los Angeles in a Los Angeles Times survey of experts in December 2008.[7]
