Case Study House (CSH) #23C meets the criteria established in the Registration Requirements outlined in the MPS cover document. The property appears to be relatively unmodified despite the infill of the reflecting ponds. As a result, the house continues to maintain enough physical integrity to be readily identifiable as a contributor to the program. As relates to eligibility, the property meets Criterion A for its association with experimental modern housing in the postwar years under the auspices of John Entenzas Arts & Architecture magazine. The property is also significant under Criterion C because it embodies the distinctive characteristics of residential architecture associated with the Case Study House program. In addition, CSH #23C was designed by master architects Edward Killingsworth, Jules Brady, and Waugh Smith. Therefore, the property qualifies for listing under Criteria A and C at the local level of significance.
