Pierre Koenig’s famous Stahl House has served as inspiration for so many creative endeavors from movies to paintings, it was only a matter of time until some talented woodworker turned it into a birdhouse.
Stahl House Birdhouse
There are several fabulous custom woodworkers out there making Mid-century Modern-inspired birdhouses. But this custom, made-to-order bird house inspired by architect Pierre Koenig’s Stahl House, Case Study House #22 with its modernist-style, solar-powered water fountain and swimming pool will make some bird feel superior to others.
Handmade by owner/designer Paul of Nevada City, CA the miniature architectural gem is made from California Redwood that’s been painted and dadoed along the main house. The roof emulates the roof on the Hollywood Hills Stahl house with a 12% pitch on support beams.
The birdhouse’s silhouette immediately brings to mind the work of Mid-Century modern architect Pierre Konig and the photos of the Stahl house by Julius Shulman.
The drinking fountain/ bird bath is Solar powered by a panel placed on the roof.
