What is owed to Wright, here, is the rigorous fidelity to an idea and to the consistent use of material and detail in carrying out that idea. The expression owes more to Bohlin Cywinski Jackson, I guess.
Note HVAC contained within paired rafters; granite (especially a "quiet" variety, for once) is perfectly at home here for kitchen (and bath) counters, amid acres of VG fir and bluestone. The decorative stonework on vertical surfaces seems too timid in texture . . . perhaps. Sensitively furnished and generously photographed. Thanks, Paul.

Unable to view Crain's without subscribing. Maybe you can take some screen grabs and email them to me, Paul ?

Meanwhile, here's other Riverwoods Humrich, and another MCM property:

Ah--here's the house, on an earlier Crain's page ? If so, "on market for first time since 1984" would be a misstatement ?

My favorite Bohlin Cywinski houses are those from the earlier years:
The "Pacific Rim Estate" happens to be Bill Gates' place... in collaboration with Cutler-Anderson Architects.

The Henry Island house looks really familiar, and might have worked on... and if you ever come across Steve Miller's place on San Juan Island, which sold fairly recently, I worked on all the structural drawings and calculations!

The musical soundtrack compliments the architecture so well. Connected at the hip.

#10 The Steel House was featured in an early issue of Fine Homebuilding in the 80s. At the time, construction had stopped for lack of funds, so only the exterior was finished.

#9 Is hilarious! Frank was known to have gone to great lengths to deny this collaboration, but now it's out in the open!

His most important collaboration since the Mitchell house in Racine.
