Usonia

Term for the U.S. coined by Frank Lloyd Wright"Usonian" redirects here.Frank Lloyd Wright[6]However, this may be a misattribution, as there is as yet no other published evidence that Butler ever used the word.

The Eppstein House: a recently restored Frank Lloyd Wright Usonian

One of Frank Lloyd Wright’s Usonian designs, the Eppstein House, has been restored to its original charm.Originally designed as part of planned Usonian community (twenty-one homes were planned, only four were built) in Galesburg, Michigan, the Eppstein House was built in 1953.

The Eppstein House: a recently restored Frank Lloyd Wright Usonian
Finalised in December 2017, the rejuvenation of the house has completely updated the building whilst preserving Wright’s original design.

The Eppstein House has been returned to its former glory with the installation of a brand new roof; the property’s concrete floors, original ceiling and outdoor awnings have also been restored.Completing the transformation is the assortment of original Frank Lloyd Wright and period furniture pieces and art works, which now adorn the interior and create those final, stunning touches to a magnificent restoration.

Well

The iconic American architect Frank Lloyd Wright may be most famous for Fallingwater, Taliesin West, the Hollyhock House, or any of these 42 other essential works, but he also built hundreds of lesser known homes.Some of these have become vacation rentals, and every so often, a Frank Lloyd Wright-designed home hits the market for sale.Once described by Wright as a “little gem,” the three-bedroom, three-bath home will be sold at a no-reserve auction by Heritage Auctions on August 12.The tidewater red cypress and brick exterior are a Wright trademark, and large patios provide plentiful space for indoor-outdoor entertaining.Inside, a sunken living room is anchored by a fireplace and the home’s expanded footprint provides ample living space not often found in smaller Usonians.

Inside Frank Lloyd Wright's Boulter House in Clifton

This 1956 Usonian came into being mainly because of Patricia Neils, whose parents, Freida and Henry J. Neils, had commissioned their own Wright house in Minnesota in 1949.Written correspondence between Wright’s office and the Boulters, who purchased this Clifton lot, dates back to 1953.

Inside Frank Lloyd Wright's Boulter House in Clifton
The Lohres reforested the land in front of the house and installed a dirt walking path, designed by Cincinnati State students.Meantime, he says he has no plans to renovate the Boulter house, and is merely hoping to “freshen it up” and maintain it.

But first, he says, “we have to live with it for a minute,” which is exactly how any Frank Lloyd Wright devotee would want it.

Upstate Homes for Sale: Frank Lloyd Wright's Usonian Vision

29 Usonia Road, known originally as the Silson house, was designed in 1951 by architect Kaneji Domoto, a Wright student.They hired Wright to map out the roads and building lots for their development, which was to be designed around Wright’s Usonian ideals.The plan — which was later tweaked by Henken with Wright’s approval — called for modest houses to be constructed on one-acre, circular lots.

Of course Wright’s notion that the “Usonian housewife will look well” in these houses might be a bit outdated.

The four-bedroom, two-bath house was completed circa 1953 and is similar in spirit to the 13 houses Henken designed at Usonia.

Seven Hidden Gems from Frank Lloyd Wright's Usonian Period

Just as it seemed that Wright’s pivotal design years had past, the Jacobs House commenced two prolific decades of innovation (1936-1959), which we now refer to as Wright’s Usonian period.Typically situated on inexpensive and remote sites, away from major urban centers, and set back from the road, Usonian homes nestled into their surrounding landscapes.These homes indicate Wright’s responsiveness to his client’s interests as well as interest in simplicity, connection to the land, and efficiency.
