A rare example of master Modernist Pierre Koenig’s early work. Built in 1953, the Squire House embodies his experimental structural steel system and palette of industrial materials that he later used for his famed Case Study houses #21, 1958, and #22, 1959, turning various versions of steel, concrete, and glass into glamour.  Koenig’s careful consideration of the site brings nature and architecture together with a light, graceful touch that distinguishes his work. Glass walls comprise the entire rear elevation, opening the entire house to a private world of rugged canyons up close, pines, and hiking trails.
