50 years is not very old to call it historic, but the Case Study House from 1963 is an important example of mid-century modern architecture. Part of the Post World-War II Case Study House program, sponsored by the influential "Arts & Architecture" magazine, it is the only one in the Bay Area. All other remaining homes - about 15 in total - are located in the Los Angeles area, with the Eames House (#8, built 1949) and the Stahl House (#22, b 1960) as the most well-known ones.
The home's large open floor plan, deck and outdoor area are made for gatherings. All rooms have direct access to the enormous deck - perfect for entertaining or taking in the sweeping views of China Camp State Park.
Why this space works: All is in harmony here. Classic mid-century furnishings create consistency in the look-and-feel that runs through the entire home. Notice the use of similar wood & natural tones and complementary lines in the legs of tables and chairs. Everything is clean and refined to balance form with function - everything plays a part, simply and beautifully. The open floorplan and abundance of windows allows light to flow through and connect all rooms with a spaciousness that is aware of the natural surrounding environment.
