For the first time ever, the Brentwood residence of legendary architect Pierre Koenig, FAIA, hits the market! Koenig, the “Rock Star” of Mid-Century Modernism, and genius behind Case Study Houses #21 and #22, two of the most-photographed and chronicled modern homes of that era. Designed and historically archived as “Koenig House #2” by the L.A. Conservancy, this steel and glass masterpiece features tiered setbacks culminating in a soaring 30-foot 3-story vertical atrium crossed by landings, staircases and illuminated by full-height clerestory windows. Meticulously-restored, this 3 bed, 2½ bath home includes a parlor, media/family room adjacent to Koenig’s architectural studio opening to a courtyard with fountain, music room and decks.
The ultimate example of an open floor plan, the I-beam steel frame sub-divides the wall panels, vertically and horizontally to define living spaces and levels. Koenig’s personal residence was the culmination of his vision of architecture for the modern era.
