Assume the same family (father?) Wright made two schemes for in 1955 near TWest.

Yes, the very same.
If you go to Google Maps Scottsdale, and zoom in to Taliesin West, and find the David Dodge house about a 1/2 mile to the northeast, the hill on which the Herberger Houses were meant to be constructed is about another 1/2 mile to the north northwest.

Today the hill remains a desert oasis in the middle of a sea of houses.

That Herberger design was always one of my favorites. Not too many images around. Does anyone have any images of it that they can post so we can see it again? I recall is had a stone dome... and it had a few levels to it. Really nice.

this must be the link im thinking about:
