Abrom and Ben Dombar should get a book. What little I have seen of their work has been very good, and they don't deserve to be forgotten. This house looks like a frightful "updating" is the manner of Mark Mills' Big Sur house for Nat Owings and the Jack Hillmer masterpiece on Belvedere Island.

Of the Clearwater, Elmhurst, and Strait Lane offerings, the Clearwater looks sincerely inspired by Wright...with some repairs and warmer colors, it could be quite nice. Elmhurst has nice millwork which has the generic neo-prairie queues, but thin on spatial aspects. Strait Lane is straight out of a currently fashionable magazine...

Look at the floors. Just keep looking at those floors, and pondering what might have been built upon them . . .

I somehow recall seeing construction photos of this house a few years ago and we Chatters commenting upon it. The curved nook and the tall proportions are sticking in my memory.

The Buffalo interiors are not bad at all, but, oy! the exterior jumble!!

The house in Western Springs needs more than trim tacked onto walls and ceilings to conjure up a FLW connection.
