The Willoughby is translated from Penfield House, one of the few Usonian designs in Frank Lloyd Wright’s career designed for a tall client (6’8″). As such, it forced Wright to move away from the low ceiling heights that characterized many of his other Usonian designs.
The design grows in linear geometry and can be ideal for a narrow/long lot. The striking vertical slotted original feature as seen in the upper exterior rendering of this home is offered as an option to the standard version. There is a dramatic sequence of spaces here from the entry to the living room as the space opens up to reveal the great room and central fireplace. The upper clerestory windows balance the light from the tall french doors and picture windows on the main view side. This design makes the home ideal for entertaining.
The master suite is privately positioned at the end of the house opposite the living room.
On the upper level, we have two bedrooms and a shared bath along with a balcony. A third bedroom could easily be added over the master suite.
Because of the higher-than-usual ceiling heights, this Usonian home was a good case study for Lindal. Our custom home designers worked to translate the floor plans and elevations to work within the standard heights of our modern Lindal Elements grid system, which has set heights for both the horizontal and vertical planes.
