Pierre Koenig's Case Study House 21 (Bailey House), widely regarded as one of modernism’s most iconic houses, is now for sale. Located in Hollywood Hills, the two-bedroom, two-bathroom home is best known for its groundbreaking design aspects and coinciding materials.

Steel and glass were the main industrial materials used in building the house, as to keep the structure simple, yet obtaining complexity in plan and organization. The materials and design details in turn come together in perfect harmony, showcased through the balance between the interior and exterior. Such was accomplished by the implementation of terraces, water, glazing, and skylights.

The exterior of the home is captivated by a 60-foot swimming pool that frames the steel facade on the east, as another pool extends towards the covered carport. The roof then welcomes steel decking, while the main entry of the house is highlighted by an all-glass north wall.

Case Study House 21 was originally built in 1958 and has since been restored in 1998. In December of 2006, the house was sold at auction for an estimated $2.5 million USD to $3.5 million USD.

The house is up for sale once again, as you can learn more here.
