Bring your favorite Eames chair...

Case Study House No. 9, designed by Charles Eames and Eero Saarinen, is for sale!

The Case Study Houses were experiments in architecture sponsored by Arts & Architecture Magazine

The magazine commissioned major architects of the time to design and build inexpensive model homes for the housing boom that arose after World War II. 

Case Study House No. 9 was designed by Charles Eames and was featured in the December 1945 issue of the magazine. The house, located in Pacific Palisades, has been restored and now serves as the guest house for an estate designed by Barry Berkus.  The entire estate is now for sale and is truly an amazing piece of architectural history.
