In many ways, this house is an outlier in the Case Study program. Instead of creating another steel-framed design seen in many of the previous submissions, the architects chose wood as the primary construction material, which allowed them to explore the potential of wood as it pertained to mass production. The use of wood also allowed them to put a modern twist on the American Craftsman style while staying true to its Southern California heritage.

When Arts & Architecture magazine introduced the Case Study House program in 1945, editor John Entenza envisioned it as a showcase of modern prototypes for the postwar American house. By its end in 1966, the program oversaw the design for 36 houses and one apartment building, and introduced avantgarde aesthetics to the single family home. Some of architecture’s biggest names such as Charles and Ray Eames, Richard Neutra, and Eero Saarinen contributed to the project, and their creations redefined the relationship between design and modern living.
