A House with a View

I recently re-watched the Canadian movie "Where the Truth Lies" and was mesmerized by its styling and architecture. It is a pretty intense film in terms of plot, but with this being said, one of the main sets is filmed in the Stahl House - Case Study House 22, an architecturally intense setting. 

The house was built in 1959 as part of the case study project - a programme implemented by Art & Architecture Magazine to get renowned architects to design and build inexpensive houses for the American housing boom - by architect Pierre Koenig.  It is a single story house in the Hollywood Hills with incredible views over Los Angeles.  It has walls almost entirely out of glass - both internal and external - and to me is a total piece of paradise!  The house is now used for movies, commercials, parties and visits, and is for sure on my list of must-sees next time we are in the LA area.
