Boomer Residence

Listed under Contemporary Architecture in Phoenix, United States.

Pin It

A one-bedroom, two-bathroom desert cottage designed for a single person, Frank Lloyd Wright makes use of his favoured geometrical shapes beyond the rectangle/square configuration. The plan is based on a grid of parallelograms, within a large exterior triangular arrangement. The central stone column stands through both floors, enclosing the bathrooms, the fireplaces and chimney. The large angled roof opens itself to the north, with much windowspace underneath on the northern side, providing ample light but protecting the building from the direct glare of the sun. The large bedroom on the second floor is surrounded by a deck on three sides.
