708 House

Once a one-story house designed by James H. Caughey for the Case Study House program in 1948, remodeled by architect Eric Owen Moss for his family and now an exuberant testament to the lighter side of the Deconstructivist style.

Al Struckus House

Embodying architect Bruce Goff's philosophy of organic architecture, which held that each design should be as unique as its owner, the building undeniably reflects the architect's "gonzo flair."

Bailey House (Case Study House #21)

Built for a couple open to the idea of a steel-framed house, which allowed architect Pierre Koenig to realize his vision of an open plan design that was both affordable and beautiful.
