Case Study House #9, Entenza House
Built for the editor and publisher of Arts & Architecture magazine John Entenza, Case Study House #9 was the twin to its predecessor CS #8. The two homes, both designed by Charles Eames and Eero Saarinen, sat on adjacent lots and although they shared similar construction materials and methods, their overall scheme and sensibility was quite different. The interior structure of CS #9 was concealed within plastered and wood-paneled surfaces and much emphasis was placed on extensive areas for entertaining as dictated by the client, with very little space devoted to private rooms. CS #9 was one of the first steel-framed houses of the program and unlike most of the other homes, the original design and vision underwent very few changes.
