House of the Day: Pierre Koenig's Last Jewel


Be still, the hearts of all modernist architecture enthusiasts: Pierre Koenig's last built project, an extraordinary four-bedroom, glass-walled home in Malibu, Calif., has just hit the market.

Priced at a cool $18.495 million, the home was described by Koenig as a "perfect jewel." The architect, whose sleek glass-and-steel creations became "emblems of the progressive values of Postwar suburbia," spent 11 years designing the beach house (his final design before his death in 2004). In typical Koenig fashion, the home is constructed almost entirely from steel, glass and concrete, and features its own drawbridge and an outdoor staircase leading down to the coastline. The home runs on solar power.

Architecture aside, we love the home's quiet location, surrounded by lush greenery and steps away from the ocean. The home also boasts views of mountains and water from almost every angle.
