A Case Study Worth Living In
The Eames House, designed and inhabited by Ray and Charles Eames as part of Art & Architecture magazine’s 1940s-60s Case Study House Program, is a prime example of L.A.’s midcentury modern aesthetic. Nestled on the bluffs of the Pacific Palisades, the two-story home, studio and connecting courtyard integrates into the meadow landscape yet stands out with the accents of bright color in its famous Mondrian-inspired geometric block façade. The wall of windows connects the space to its natural surroundings, and also allows for a view into the couples’ past life inside. Because of this, exterior tours are worthwhile but for the diehards, pricey private interior tours and meadow picnics are available by reservation.
