I am still interested in seeing the first scheme for Richard Lloyd Jones.
Goff's first all geometric design was I think 1925

Many thanks to Kevin for posting this lovely house by Aaron Green. To my eye, it's more appealing and sensible than Wright's nearby "Honeycomb" house. Sometimes the pupil surpasses the master.

Wow JimM thanks. It is great to see it in color, which I did not know.

Any hope of reading the room functions on the plan ? There's a "great hall" (perhaps) with centered fireplace, on the left, and a smaller pair of spaces -- one with a fireplace, and steps up or down in front of it. Is that a billiard table in grey ?

It should read similar to the built. We should add a plan of built second plan to compare.
If this were the built plan I wonder what others would say besides "the pickle factory". The art deco house maybe? It would be harder to classify in the history of the city, we call the built Streamlined. I know Wright would hate that,I obviously classify it as to unique to be any form of Art Deco.

I would love to see the plans of the Paul house -- which didn't seem to get posted in the previous thread.

Surprisingly, this is still (nominally) the Paul house thread. And speaking of names, perhaps Kevin could amend his title post to correct the spelling of the client's wife's name ?

Yes, I too would like to see the Paul plan. Am I correct in believing this to be a 30-60 grid house ? That places it within the discussion, elsewhere, of the entry of that grid into Wright's work . . . ?

Yes, would love to see a plan. What a beautiful compact design. The Paul house looks to be on a 4' X 4' parallelogram?

I was comparing the early images from Aaron Green's website to those in the listing site. It looks to be in very good and unaltered condition.

Earlier in this thread, Education Professor mentioned that there are photos and a floor plan in the November 1956 House Beautiful magazine. Anyone have a copy that could be scanned and posted???

DavidC, there are two photographs of the Paul House in the 1959 HB (pp 328-9) but no floor plan, although there is a plan of Bartholomew, which EP may have been referring to? In the 1956 HB, there are no images nor plans of Paul, but there is a fetching photograph of a beautiful woman on page 231 wearing a wide-brimmed hat trimmed with Parliament cigarettes.

I've checked my files, and the Paul house is indeed featured in detail in the Nov. 1956 edition of HB.....pp. 238-242 and following pages. Several photos and a floor plan are included.

RG & EP - thanks for the further info.

EP - is there anyway for you to scan the pertinent info from the Nov. HB and pass it along to SDR to post?

Hi David, I'll give it a go. Our scanner is rather low-tech and sometimes the results aren't very good.

Sorry, EP, I was looking at The FLW issue of HB, November of 1955.
