I was doing some perusing of the FLW archives at the Getty Center and want to add another fav design to the aforementioned Booth House.



It's the Hargrove residence of 1950-51 intended for a site in Orinda California. A real spacious double decker hemicyle. Grand sweeping lines. Full drawings if anyone cares to build it. Of course, the killer was it was way over Dr. Hargroves $50K budget and that was 1950. No telling what it would cost today.

Lovely quote from Mr Nesbitt. There's a client AND a site that deserved a Wright home. The drawings are marvelous, aren't they ?
