Frank Lloyd Wright - V.C. Gift Shop, interior

Photo courtesy Elliot Who?

A small brick-fronted Sullivanesque San Francisco store, designed in 1948, which I understand is now a 'folk art museum.'

The interior is considered a precursor of Wright's 1959 NY Guggenheim Museum.

The top photo looks like the interior of my house. The design, colour and shape of the handles of the stairway are almost exactly the same; and the curves are the same as the upstairs gallery which looks down to the lounge.

I am in love with the architect of my home. There is not a day goes by when my partner and I do not extol his praises and our absolute delight of being able to live in the home we love so much.

Here's an opportunity to give your architect a free ad RR. And maybe, too, a photo of your home?

The top one seems more suitable for a home than a museum or a shop.
