Case Study House #8, also known as Eames House, stands in the Pacific Palisades neighborhood of Los Angeles. Designed by Charles and Ray Eames, this mid-century modern architecture piece is part of the historic Case Study Houses program initiated by Arts & Architecture magazine. Located on a 1.5-acre lot, the structure overlooks the Pacific Ocean and was constructed in 1949. The house is maintained with original furnishings and personal effects of the Eames family, comprising a living space and a working studio. The interior, featuring a collection of objects and books, is preserved as the Eameses left it. Exterior tours are guided, and interior viewing requires an appointment. Interior photography is restricted; however, guests are allowed to peer inside during tours. Tours last 90 minutes and include historical context and information about the design and materials of the house. Reservations are mandatory for all visits, with special rates for students. Parking is available on the street near the site; visitors should follow directions from the Eames House website rather than GPS. Accessibility is limited due to uneven gravel paths and minimal seating options. Portable restroom facilities are provided. The Eames Foundation is responsible for the upkeep and conservation of the house. The Eames House encapsulates the architectural and design legacy of Charles and Ray Eames, representing a key cultural landmark in Los Angeles. It provides an intimate look into the Eameses' design philosophy and personal living space.
