Charles Eames, who worked always with his wife and partner Ray, was the most innovative and broadly-based of American designers. Known primarily for his furniture and his explorations of film and photographic media, his own house was one of his few experiments with architecture. Its construction was inspired by the Case Study programme which California Arts and Architecture magazine propagated in the 1940s and 1950s. Assembled entirely from standardised industrial components, and composed with a sensitive irregularity which reflected Eames' interest in Japanese wooden-framed traditional architecture, it is sited at the top of a gently inclined meadow, behind a protective row of mature eucalyptus trees which filter light into an interior where the furniture and judiciously selected objects form a significant part of the architectural ensemble.
