Eames House, Case Study House No. 8 Year built: 1949Architects: Charles and Ray EamesLocation: Pacific Palisades, CaliforniaVisiting info: Reserved self-guided exterior tours onlyMust know: Although this house/studio for designers Charles and Ray Eames is simply two rectangular volumes made of off-the-shelf steel structures and windows, it is a colorful expression of their design sensibility and a suitable backdrop for their collections and creations. It is also sensitively merged into the sloping site, showing that the house is as much about place as about universal modern ideals.Read more about the Eames House

Aluminum allowed for large expanses of inexpensive operable glass. The Case Study House was born while we figured out how to implement postwar technologies. This photo displays a Case Study Home designed by Charles and Ray Eames: open interior spaces; open expanses of glass.
John Hill added this to Must-Know Modern Homes: Eames House
The full name of the project is Eames House, Case Study House No. 8. Charles started designing the house in 1945 with Eero Saarinen, when they were commissioned by John Entenza, the editor of Arts & Architecture magazine. The Case Study House program ran until 1966 and saw the realization of 23 modern houses that embraced industrialization.
Case Study House, Pacific Palisades, Los Angeles (1949), Ray and Charles Eames. A radical design at the time it was built, this home is still delightfully fresh looking 60 years later. The architects were so concerned with minimizing the impact of house on the site that they did a complete redesign. The house is composed of two linear steel-framed buildings, separated by outdoor space and tucked into the hillside.
Together the Eameses designed only one piece of architecture, their own house and studio in Pacific Palisades, California. Like their furniture and other design work, the architecture expresses a concern at all levels, as well as a means of turning the standard (in this case a prefab kit of parts) into the artistic.
Karen Bofinger added this to Architekturikonen: Das Eames-Haus
Der vollständige Name des Projekts lautet „Eames House, Case Study House No. 8“. Charles Eames begann 1945 gemeinsam mit Eero Saarinen das Haus zu entwerfen, weil John Entenza, Chefredakteur des Magazins „Arts & Architecture“ die Männer damit beauftragte: Es war Teil eines Programms für Fallstudien-Häuser, das bis 1966 andauerte und den Bau von 23 modernen Häusern vorsah, die im Zeichen der Industrialisierung stehen sollten.

It reminds me of walking by that house to check the surf every weekend morning as a teen. I guess it helped to live right next door. Ray Eames would invite me in for tea and I remember thinking "why is everything so low?". I had no idea of the significance of growing up in this pocket of architectural icons.
