I have been searching Wrightchat and the internet about info regarding the Gillin Residence.
The images are very elusive. Not many online.
Only a few shots from the film Bottle Rocket . And one pretty good interior from Arcaid. Fabulous fireplace and ceiling lighting!!!
Maybe my favorite Triangle grid design.

Can anyone post a Floorplan?
Any juicy information about it?
It seems to be the largest and last of the Usonians. is this true?
Oh and one other question....
Which Wright design was the the first to use the Red concrete slab flooring???
It seems that near the end that the flooring was not being made red any longer. Gillin and Fawcett both have non-red floor. Any other concrete slab flooring not red out there????
I think it's safe to say that a brown concrete floor is a very rare exception to the use of Wright's favored Cherokee Red.
The Reisley addition has terrazzo floors rather than concrete, again at the request of the client, for ease of maintenance.
