To me it seems as if these "triangles" are simply drapes...Never noticed that window before.
Will keep my eye open for closer shots.
It seems it might consist of triangles:
two light pointing up and one dark pointing down

"On the other hand, the small window of this room that is located on the northwest facade does not appear in Wright's drawings.
Maybe it was a request from the client that had to be designed at the last minute?"
Wright Green, A.(2011). Building the Pauson House. San Francisco: Pomegranate, p.28.
In this plan from March 1940 - signed by both Ellis the contractor and Rose Pauson - you see the window and that the shape of the fireplace wasnÃ‚Â´t clear at the time.
Also that the opening was intended to be a wardrobe. Further you see the lozenge-shaped mullions.
-does that mean you have pictures of the rest of the upper floor?A room that I have unfinish in my model and that I would like to recreate is the master bedroom. Unfortunately I have not found any pictures of this room so my main question is about the fireplace. How do you think the design was?
Not to knock your really outstanding work, but since youÃ‚Â´re open to suggestions...
When revisiting the master bedroom you might wanna check this discrepancy (distortion and angle aside) with the overlapping/intersecting part of the roof and the chimney

Can you tell us what the unit dimension is ? It's noted on the drawing, at lower left, but I can't read it.
I'll have to look at the previous drawings for confirmation, but it's surprising -- isn't it -- to see window mullions falling between unit lines rather than on them . . .
Tom, Mr Wright was always open to the latest materials. Usonian drawings are sprinkled with trade names of new surfaces and sealants, for instance, most of them unfamiliar to us today.
A color photo on page 7 almost shows the kitchen/dining window mullions. I read them as fin-shaped, like the living-room ones. Their shape seems to vary on the plan drawings cited . . .
The unit of the Pauson House grid is 3'6" square
The scale of I think all drawings IÃ‚Â´ve seen so far is 1/4" = 1'-0" (except for the details of course)
And yes you are right, it is surprising and a part of my /(our studioÃ‚Â´s) research as in how FLLW operated with the often varying grids in terms of positioning.
Unfortunately I do not have photographs of the upper part of the house, not even my model is very developed in those areas, Jeff's model (which you can find at some point in this thread) has done a great job defining the entire top of the house in his model
I saw the detail image above, I thought "Ooh -- a photo I haven't seen before." No watercolor or colored-pencil rendering -- or photo -- could capture the
building in just that way . . .
I think j_f will be a force to be reckoned with, as they say. Now to (belatedly) acquire my copy of the Pauson book. Tsk tsk !

It mentions the "Behind-the-scenes photographs and alternate images from the famous 1942 Arizona desert photo shoot at Frank Lloyd WrightÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s Pauson house." Of course this means there are unpublished photos taken at the house. While they are probably meant to feature the models, who knows what could be in the background? Maybe one was taken in front of the bedroom fireplace, you never know. Has anyone ever looked into this?
