hidden meanings

Well on at least one elevation the initials would appear to be HS.
For horses**t perhaps.

I've never particularly liked E.D. Stone, but this is just ridiculous.

It is interesting, if not particularly surprising, to note that the Stahl house went through some changes during Koenig's design process. Probably the most major change involves the extent of the slab at the living room wing. Of course, as built, the slab pretty much stops at the window line. Howeve...

Stahl Changes

A comparision of old and new photos reveals that the kitchen was remodeled at some point; don't know when. Perhaps the biggest change is the closing of the space between the 'floating' ceiling structure and the underside of the buildings metal deck. Also, the original kitchen ceiling was apparently ...

Stahl House

STLModern-
Thanks for posting the pictures. They answer a lot of questions, as they show areas that aren't usually presented in books. They also show how 'on the edge' the living room really is. What a view!

Ok. Got it now. The first two photos both show the same metal wall and the same drive. In looking through a copy of "The Presence of the Case Study Houses", the recent photos there reveal a 'minor' change to this house. The low wall between the carport and the pool area has been replaced w...

CSH #22

Re: CSH #22

In the first photo by STLModern showing the south and east walls of the living room wing, has the east wall been covered with metal siding? Or am I seeing closed drapes through glass? If it is metal, does anyone know when it was done?
Great pics.

My favorite resdential architect is Frank Lloyd Wright, but I also have a strong liking for the minimalist work of Pierre Koenig and Craig Ellwood, among others. The recent ...
