Charles and Ray Eames
 
location California, Pacific Palisades
function museum, private house
contributed by rtaube

Also known as Case Study House #8, the Eames House was one of 25 homes built as part of The Case Study House Program. The program sought to explore the methods of designing and building inexpensive and efficient model homes using techniques and materials derived from the production lines following World War II. The Eames house served as both their home and their studio nestled into a wooded bluff overlooking the Pacific Ocean. The Mondrianesque panel facade is composed of cheap steel and glass parts that could be found in a catalog. Of the twenty-five Case Study Houses built, the Eames house is considered the most successful both as an architectural statement and as a comfortable, functional living space.
