One the many Usonian Houses Frank Lloyd Wright completed in the last decades of his life, Wright once told apprentice John Howe he “…would have placed the Palmer house at the top of his list.”
Not bad when that list included works like the Hanna House and Fallingwater.The Palmer House was another of his houses designed on a hexagonal module.
No ninety-degree corners, allowing the house to open up and spaces to flow easily into one another--and the occasional acute angle to bring nature in, as here in the “Tea House.” (Note to the lighting hidden in the ceiling decks—always more interesting seeing light rather than light fittings.)
