3 Case Study Homes You Will Love

3 Case Study Homes You Will Love - The HipVan Blog

Case Study Houses are inexpensive and efficient model homes designed my major architects from 1945 to 1966. Commissioned by Arts & Architecture magazine, these homes were designed for the housing boom cause by the return of US soldiers after WWII. Read on to see which are our favourites & how to create the look at home!

1. Eames House (Case Study House #8)

This home was designed by the famous Charles and Ray Eames. The house is made of prefabricated materials that would be easy to built. The exterior is made of metal frames, which is complemented by Japanese influence indoors. We love how the light shines in through the huge windows!

To recreate the look in your home, stick to earthy tones like brown and tan, but add pops of primary colours to keep things interesting! Red will really go well with all the browns in the house.

3. Case Study House #28

This house was designed by Conrad Buff and Donald Hensman, and is one of the largest projects in this program. The designers believe in the positive effect of using similar materials on the exterior and interior of the house, so you can see that they used exposed bricks indoors and outdoors! This industrial look is complemented by mid-century furnishings that soften the home. We love the use of colours and patterns in the house!
