Interesting to see plans from what I assume is a transitionary period in which Wright's designs were completed or adapted for clients after his death. Was this something Wright designed for this client or a previous design repurposed for them by the Fellowship?

This doesn't look like Wright's work to me. The kitchen/dining plan is quite alien; the mismatch between the openings to the two spaces is disturbing. The stair is another oddity, while the elevations bear little resemblance to other late-career Taliesin designs.
