Frank Lloyd Wright was a famous architect known for his beautiful mid-century homes, and today we’re introducing one of them.
It took 40 years for this house to be fully implemented. Frank Lloyd Wright originally designed the compact house for a retired school teacher. The site embodies its principles of organic architecture by connecting the home and 10 acres of gardens, sloping lawns and mature forest with views of Honey Creek.
The house was specially designed for the harsh winter climate in the area – exposed glass has been minimized while the steeply sloping roof has been constructed to shed snow and highlight the icicle decoration in winter. The house has sloping layers of wood, glass, and ceilings that grow 25 feet high. The entire home design is all about redwood panels that can be seen literally in every room. Red brick and even reddish concrete floors make the house complete and harmonious and these red hues create a warm ambience that seems to hug you when you step inside.
The house has large outdoor spaces with a Japanese influence. Drawings and blueprints from the Wright Foundation are included in the house which confirms that the house is sure to be an authentic Frank Lloyd Wright design that has been well executed and maintained.
