Eames House - Case Study No. 8
The latest addition to our layout is the Eames House, also known as Case Study No. 8.
About this creation


I really enjoy modern style architecture and was very excited when I came across this gem. Built in 1949 by a husband and wife design team, Charles and Ray Eames, this home was designed as part of a case study competition sponsored by Arts & Architecture magazine.



What drew me to the house was the colored panels...I thought, hey, this would look really great on our layout. I also liked the historical aspect of the house and thought it could fit in nicely with my Frank Lloyd Wright inspired house. Hmmm...I might be on to something here...we may have a "historical" block in our city yet!



Wikipedia has a nice article about the house ( just type in Eames House ) or search for it online if you want to learn more. The house is located in the Pacific Palisades neighborhood near Los Angeles, California.



Some of the interior detail was hard to capture due to lighting and my lack of patience trying to get the perfect shot. If you're interested in seeing the interior be sure to stop by and see us at Brickworld!

Hmm, at first it looked like some wacky styled library I saw once... nice job here.

It was a pleasure to meet you and your husband - may I never forget his and my experience in the washroom ;-) Thanks for bringing the conversation down to my level and putting up with me when too much ETOH had passed my lips. Looking forward to next year, and I will keep my LED light in a 'special' place. Lee.

The interior may be a little bland (In my opinion) but you sure do make up for it with the exterior. Amazing work Stacy

Congrats for your amazing version of Eames house! I work for a french production company that produces the Design Documentary series for french/german cultural channel ARTE. We are working on an episode about LEGO and would love to use those pictures. Please contact me at flavie@steamboatfilms.com for further information!

Disappointing. I'm a lifetime Lego fan and almost fetishistic about Eames products but this is not a happy marriage.

WOW!!!! This is fabulous. I just recently visited MAUI and found a CONDO complex with the same modern feel to it. I took a few pictures to try and DESIGN into LEGO. Your creation has inspired me, and shown me. IF YOU BUILD IT, THEY WILL COME. Maybe to BRICKLAND that is. I will keep a CONDO UNIT for Heather and her hubby to live in. Move in date TBD, probably 2020 or sooner. Great overall concept.

The boxiness of this house sure translates effortlessly into Lego!

I bow before the awesomeness of this MOC. Keep it up and I'll have to try my hand at building something real-world based. This is superior work! Love the lamps.

That's a nice house! I like how you can see the interior vaguely through its windows ;)

It's rather ironic that I watch HGTV, yet I don't have a clue about architecture. But I do know this- you really have a knack for architecture!

That is a nice capture of the house. Not your traditional house arch that's for sure. I wish more modern houses had caught on. Liven up the street you know. Should be nice for your layout. see ya. garth

Nice, Stacy! I think a whole series of these would be a BLAST! I'm assuming (although I didn't see his name mentioned anywhere) that the exterior look of the home was based upon Mondrian's work. And I can think of all kinds of fun concepts for more homes based on other modern painters...Pollack, Calder, Dali, Picasso, O'Keefe. By the way, some nice interior work to reflect the style of the house. Great job!

This is just awesome. I love the way you have captured the shape and colors of this house. The history of the house is a great touch that really makes this MOC. Great work Stacy!

Ooooh! Modern is one of my favorite styles of architecture! You've done a wonderful job capturing the look of it here. When can I move in?

You know, they tried to do a case study on me once. Turns out there's no one on the planet who is capable of helping someone like me. But you knew that already. This will be a really nice addition to the layout! ~ Chris.
