Hans Geyer was a very talented architect from Racine - and accomplished many homes in a somewhat Usonian/international style. Never worked with Wright. This home was owned by Ray Farley, one of the only non-Johnson family members to head up Johnson Wax. We found him to be a wonderful, thoughtful client when we worked with him to add a significant addition to this home.

The DroneHub house may not be very Wrightian, but it isn’t bad for a large house. There are a lot of details that enliven the place.

DroneHub is not a bad, if somewhat unnecessarily busy, house. Yet for all its walls of glass and its splendid location, it seems not to have taken advantage of the views, which stretch uninterrupted all the way to the New York border.

The interior of the Erickson house is all about the wood ceiling. That is the only element that draws attention. Perhaps the brick walls would command attention as well if the entire place hadn't been whited out. As is, it will take a great deal of work and money to rectify something that should never have happened. A violation of an interesting work of architecture.
