Visiting The Eames House

Since I was getting some help for my website from a couple of friends in L.A., I decided to incorporate some pleasure into this mostly “business” trip that I took last month. One of my favorite things to do when visiting the West Coast is check out as many of the amazing modern homes as possible. So, I thought why not focus on one of these unique properties as a backdrop for my very first blog. My friend Scott lives in Pacific Palisades which just so happens to be where one of the more famous Case Study houses was built by the well known design couple, Ray and Charles Eames, probably more famous for designing chairs (such as the one I’m sitting in on the “Contact Me” page) than for their residential architecture. Still, I had a great time visiting the Eames house which is open to the public for tours as long as you make an appointment. The house is perched on a wonderful site overlooking the PCH and the Pacific Ocean. A very friendly and knowledgeable host will greet you and give you some interesting historical perspective as well as the do’s and don’ts while touring the grounds. If you find yourself visiting Los Angeles and would like to see fantastic examples of modern residential architecture, spend some time in the Palisades just north of Santa Monica.
