Pierre Koenig's Case Study House #21, now carefully and immaculately restored to the original intent and design of the architect, is an architectural landmark located in the Hollywood Hills. Completed early within his career, the steel and glass residence is a pure expression of Koenig's approach to design. Using a reduced range of materials, he created a living space that gracefully reflects the demands, conditions, and requirements of modern living in Los Angeles.

The spare structure is balanced by five reflection pools that completely surround the house and serve both cooling functions and as visual transitions between building and site. Intellectually, historically and aesthetically, the house is a pristine modern object.

Wright will offer this important real estate at auction on 03 December 2006.
Estimate $2.5–3.5 million
