Now you can buy a home directly inspired by Frank Lloyd Wright’s designs

A Seattle company has built homes based on the principles of Wright's celebrated Usonian houses.

The Seattle-based construction company, Lindal Cedar Homes, in collaboration with the Frank Lloyd Wright Foundation, commissioned Aris Georges and Trina Lindal, both graduates of the Frank Lloyd Wright School of Architecture, to create a series of nine houses inspired by the Usonian philosophy of the great American architect.

“Usonia”, a term coined by Wright himself, derives from “United States of America” and encompasses a set of principles that the architect used as guidelines to create more than a hundred houses starting in the 1930s. Integration with the landscape, the use of natural materials like stone, wood, and brick, open floor plans, affordability, and energy efficiency were the conceptual pillars of Wright’s vision for a new architecture deeply in harmony with the American landscape.

Given that the Usonian houses followed an extremely flexible logic, they remain perfect for contemporary lifestyles, proving their enduring relevance. The designs are available for purchase in the Lindal Imagine series, including the one based on Frank Lloyd Wright’s famous Jacobs 1 house in Wisconsin, titled “The Madison”.
