If you want to spend the holidays this year in your very own Pierre Koenig Case Study house you may be in luck, as long as you have a few million to spend. Case Study House #21, located on Wonderland Ave. in the Hollywood Hills, is being put up for sale by Wright Auctions in Chicago on December 3.
The Case Study houses were a project by Arts & Architecture magazine which ran from the mid-40’s to the mid 60’s and featured model homes built by a range of prominent architects. Pierre Koenig designed houses #21 and #22. The one for sale has been restored to its original design, and Julius Shulman, whose photographs of the case study houses are some of the most well-known architectural images ever made, was hired to re-shoot the house, not a small feat as Shulman is 96.
