One of my fav pieces of architecture is the Stahl House (aka Case Study House # 22) in Los Angeles California. It was built in 1960 by architect Pierre Koenig for his client Buck Stahl. It was made famous by a Julius Shulman photograph, showing two women leisurely sitting in a corner of the house with an eventide panoramic view of the city through floor-to-ceiling glass walls...
It's been used in a pile of movies, TV shows and even a video game
Films include Smog (1962); The First Power (1990); The Marrying Man (1991); Corrina, Corrina (1994); Playing by Heart (1998), where it was used as the home of Jon Stewart’s character; Why Do Fools Fall In Love (1998); Galaxy Quest (1999), as the home of Tim Allen's character; The Thirteenth Floor (1999); Nurse Betty (2000); and Where the Truth Lies (2005). Television shows include Adam-12; Emergency!; and Columbo. A look-alike was also included in the 2004 video game Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas as one of the houses players can buy. (via Wikipedia)
