The house is located on a 1.4 acre Site; in the Pacific Palisades facing the ocean, and in the shade of the large eucalyptus tree planted by the founder Venice Abbot Kinney. Not too far away, also facing the ocean, sits Case Study House #9, designed by Charles himself and Eero Saarinen. The original design of the Eames House had the house on stilts, projecting over a meadow and driveway, called the Bridge House. The program of the Bridge was the same as the Eames House: a couple whose children had grown and moved away, needed living and studio space. The new design consisted of two rectilinear elements connected by a courtyard.
