This past Saturday, I visited the famous Case Study House #22... The Stahl House located in Hollywood Hills, California.
About Stahl House:
The Stahl House story starts in May 1954 when the Stahls purchased a small lot above Sunset Blvd. Over the following two years C.H. “Buck” Stahl and Carlotta Stahl worked weekends constructing the broken concrete wall that surrounds the buildable portion of the lot. During these working weekends, the design and vision for the Stahl House began to take shape. In the Summer of 1956, Buck Stahl constructed a three dimensional model of their dream home. It is with this model they interviewed and hired Architect Pierre Koenig in November 1957. On April 8th, 1959 the home was inducted into the Case Study House program by Arts & Architecture magazine, and assigned the number 22. Construction of the house began in May 1959 and was completed a year later in May of 1960. It was on May 9th, 1960 that the famed architectural photographer Julius Shulman captured the image that would represent modern architecture in Los Angeles during the 20th century.
The Stahl House was declared a Historic-Cultural landmark of the City of Los Angeles in 1999. In 2007, the American Institute of Architects listed the Stahl House as one of the top 150 structures on their “America’s Favorite Architecture” list, one of only 11 in Southern California. The house was included in a list of all time top 10 houses in Los Angeles in a Los Angeles Times survey of experts in December 2008. In 2013, the Stahl House became listed on the National Register of Historic Places.
It was such an amazing experience to visit the Stahl House. Its architecture design and the story behind the house motivated me a lot about my life goals. I always want to work hard and keep doing what I love to do in order to live wherever I want in the future. I admire people who get what they want by creating their own passes. Mr. and Mrs. Stahl are good examples. If you want to know more about the house and the history, please visit the house by yourself and trust me, it worths so much!
I wore a Striped Criss Cross Back Swing Dress from Romwe. The cross back design and the classic 70s swing dress is what I feel the perfect one for the beautiful house. Like imaging I am Mrs. Stahl. LOL
