This masterfully crafted property was designed in 1954 by world-renowned Case Study architect Pierre Koenig, who was one of the most influential mid-century modern architects of his time. Koenig eventually became an international design-star with his Case Study House #21 in 1958, the "Bailey House", and in 1959 with CSH #22, the "Stahl House", probably LA's most famous residency. A rare gem tucked away in the hills north of Los Angeles, this early work of Koenig's architectural legacy was his fourth house and commissioned by the Scott family. In 2014, the new owners bought the severely maintenance deferred house and land from the original owner, Aurora Scott, and thoroughly restored it to its former glory and according to Koenig's original plans. It represents the golden age of mid-century modern architecture and features visionary & colorful interior design, sensitively preserved half a century after its conception.

Nikolaus was super responsive and polite over email and in person. He welcomed us into his home which has been remarkably well preserved and is in pristine condition. The location is so peaceful and quiet and it was a pleasure to shoot there. Would highly recommend this location for a small crew that will appreciate such a special mid-centruy gem.
This was a very flexible and versatile space. Nikolaus was a very helpful and understanding host. Would highly recommend as a location for your next project!
The space was beautiful and perfect for our photoshoot. It was a little smaller than expected and with a crew of 16 people it was a very full house, but we worked closely with Nikolaus to maximize the space efficiently. Nikolaus was on site the whole time and very attentive the entire shoot to assist when needed. Our photos turned out stunning and the home was the perfect backdrop.
Great place to shoot at. Very accommodating. The space was a little warm to work in for 10 ppl, I would recommend bringing an external ac with own generator with owners permission.
Nikolaus was an exceptional host for our shoot. He was very attentive and explained everything I needed to know in detail during email and in person. His space was perfect for what we had mind -- extremely clean, lots of room and lots of light to shoot with. Other than the summer heat we had to deal it, it was a perfect experience. Would definitely book again.
We filmed at Nik's house for 2 days. The space is REALLY beautiful but I do not recommend for crews over 15 people. Nikolaus is super responsive and communicative.
