Following on such earlier Los Angeles examples as the 1922 Kings Road House by Rudolph Schindler, and the 1929 Lovell "Health House" by Richard Neutra, Koenig's steel houses were a significant contribution to post-World War II modernism.

 LA Observed: Pierre Koenig, architect was 78
His Case Study houses #21 and #22 helped put Koenig among the elite modernist architects who gave Southern California a new reputation for suburban design in the postwar years.
As part of a group of architects that also included Charles and Ray Eames, Raphael Soriano and Craig Ellwood, Koenig was a key figure in a generation that helped make Los Angeles one of the great laboratories of 20th century architecture.
Mostly designed of affordable Industrial Age materials, they were a reflection of Le Corbusier's famous dictum that houses were "machines for living." The difference was Koenig's ability to root such ideas in the particular ethos of suburban L.A., with its trim lawns and whirring appliances.
