Case Study House #20



The Internationally recognized Case Study House Program was founded to demonstrate that well designed, affordable housing could be built using technologies and materials developed during W.W.II. Designer Saul Bass commissioned #20 of the 24 houses completed. The Bass House’s integrated indoor/outdoor space “achieved a level of sophistication not seen in other Case Study Houses”. The zoned open plan incorporates: owner’s zone with studio office, garden, master bedroom & bath; the formal zone with living and dining rooms and entry atrium; and the family zone with kitchen, family room, dining terrace, 2 additional bedrooms and swimming pool. The house is original, but in need of restoration.
