I'm consistently impressed each time I see pictures of Van Fossen's houses. Of the various Wright-admiring architects, he appears to have mastered the intimate sense of scale better than most. (I haven't seen any of his works in person though, maybe I'm wrong about this.)

I agree, jay, and think you are right about "better than most." Van Fossen's work is excellent.

Interesting to see Van Fossen quoting Wright's Taliesin sash, in this quiet and unassertive design.

I wonder who made the green-and-red wallpaper (?), reminiscent of the Coonley exterior tile . . .
