POMPANO BEACH, Fla., September 14, 2022 /PRNewswire-PRWeb/ — “Pierre Koenig’s Beach House – His Final Design”
One of the world’s most famous mid-century modern architects, the University of Southern California distinguished professor Pierre Koenig got his bachelors from USCs School of Architecture and taught at the venerable institution for forty years. A prolific teacher and the recipient of more than twenty awards, Koenig was known for his contemporary designs. Reflecting the optimism of the atomic age, the mid-century modernist architecture school featured clean lines, geometric shapes and functional materials with an emphasis on steel, glass and concrete. When Art and Architecture magazine sponsored its Case Study Houses, experiments in residential architecture, Koenig was chosen to design two. His Case Study House #22, also known as the Stahl House, is widely regarded as the iconic The Angels modern. Made famous by a striking 1960 photo of Julius Shulman from the glass-walled house hanging over LA’s city lights, the house has been the set of countless movies and music videos and has been referenced by both “The Simpsons” and the “Grand Theft Auto” video game series.
Koenig’s last project was a beautiful oceanfront home along the Malibu coast. The striking modern is known as the ‘Koenig Beach House’ and is for sale at $17.85 million. The 3,600-square-foot home reflects its quintessential modern aesthetic, with the same clean lines and floor-to-ceiling windows that make the Stahl House so memorable. The glass walls give each room breathtaking views from Broad Beach to Point Dume and let in plenty of natural light. Creamy walls with chrome-and-blonde wood accents add to the fresh, minimalist look, while sliding glass doors offer seamless indoor and outdoor living. A steel central staircase connects the floors in style.
The three-story, four-bedroom, four-bathroom home is located just a few yards from the Pacific coast. Multiple steel and glass decks offer plenty of entertainment options, including an oversized spa where guests can relax while looking out at the waves, as well as a retractable staircase that leads down to the sand.

Malibu is, as the signs say, “21 miles of scenic beauty” along the coast of California just west of The Angels.
