In Phoenix, Arizona, the Circular Sun House – also known as Norman Lykes House – is the latest residential project by Frank Lloyd Wright. It is one of the fourteen circular houses that the master of American architecture crafted throughout his career.
Designed in 1959 and built in 1967, the 3,095 square feet house hosts three bedrooms, three bathrooms, an office, a big living space with fireplace, and a library and is designed to blend with the curves of the promontory on which it was built.
Wright envisioned the house as a series of concentric circles, which follow one another seamlessly from one space to another, expanding in all dimensions. From the floors to the outside wall to the pool, to the kitchen and office windows, and to the built-in furniture.
The interior walls are covered in Philippine mahogany, the floors are in Indian slate and the master bathroom is in Italian pink marble. The windows, with steel windows, open onto Palm Canyon.
