Abour Bob Moshers work in the Malaga area (Spain) I forgot to mention that president Eisenhower comissioned him to design a house in Guadalmina (the Marbella area) around the same time Mr. Mosher designed the villas in Rancho Domingo, - this was in the sixties. - If you google around a bit I´m sure you can find a photo of the villa. - In a way president Eisenhower who loved to play golf put Marbella on the map in those days. - It was a post world war two period where spain was flurishing. - President Eisenhower was a good friend of general Marshall and dutch general Krul who had my house built. - Nice with a bit of history ? I think so...

Fascinating to see so many fans of Mosher and Wright here.

I actually have one of Mosher's houses for sale in the Rancho Domingo urbanization between Malaga and Marbella.

It was one of the first of the 27 designed by Mosher and inspired by Wright and it became part of the protected heritage of the area.

You can find some more about Mosher's work in this PDF (just do a search for his name here): https://www.geometriadigital.com/wp-con ... malaga.pdf


The house that is for sale is this one: https://www.propertybenalmadena.com/vil ... ho_domingo

I imagine that you know this but there are a few more "wrightean" houses on the Costa del Sol that Robert Mosher designed.
I live in Rancho Domingo in Benalmadena where Robert Mosher designed around 27 villas in the sisxties and seventies.
I have a few of the old floor plans of the villas should anyone be interested.
Guirri,
How about some photos to go along with the plans?
Hola, me encuentro realizando un trabajo sobre la obra de Mosher y os he conocido hace poco tiempo en este blog, ¿tendríais planos que pudiera conocer para la investigación? Muchísimas gracias

Thats a real interesting document - showing the 'modern' architectural history of Spain.

I found 1 page mentioning Mosher with this image. ( a screen shot)
