Case Study House #20B



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.
