One of Frank Lloyd Wright’s Largest Homes Lists for the First Time Ever

Though you can no longer commission Frank Lloyd Wright to design your dream home, the real estate market has made it possible for anyone to hold on to the hope that one day—maybe—they can own a piece of the iconic architect’s work. This past year, a few Wright-designed homes have hit the market, including the 1,940-square-foot Arthur Mathews House in June and the Randall Fawcett Home in August. Now, a Usonian home in Wisconsin has become available too.

Midcentury-modern furnishings add to the home’s design.

Listed through Re/Max, the 6-bed, 6.5-bath home in Mount Pleasant is for sale for $725,000. At just under 5,000 square feet, the property is one of Wright’s largest Usonian designs and includes many classic Wright features, like a low-slung roof, large windows, and crisp wood interiors. The property sits on a bluff on three acres of land, and the great room is cantilevered over a

Why Home Design Magazine ‘Dwell’ Got into Making Houses

Would you buy a house from a magazine publisher? How about if that magazine were Dwell, a publication that’s been an arbiter of good design and living well since it debuted at the start of the millennium? If your answer is “yes,” then today is your lucky day, as Dwell is now officially in the home-building business.

On September 20, Dwell unveiled the Dwell House, a prefab ADU (accessory dwelling unit, better known as an in-law suite) that’s meant to live in the backyard of an existing home. The 540-square-foot, one-bedroom home is fully constructed off-site by Dwell‘s partner on the project, west coast ADU specialist Abodu, and then delivered and installed in your backyard after Abodu pulls all necessary permits for you.

This secluded alpine home comes with three distinct pod-shaped living spaces

Designed as a series of alpine ski-lodge villas for guests looking to live in the lap of luxury on the mountaintops, the ‘Secluded’ glamping cabins come with a unique design that quite literally allows you to have a stunning view with each room. The three-pronged architecture presents a unique benefit, with each room having a full view of different sides of the mountains. With each room angled ever so slightly, they face in different areas, allowing you to see potentially both the sunrise and sunset rather well!

The Secluded lodge is best described as looking like a ‘W’ from up above. The three main rooms – a living space, bedroom, and bathroom, connect to a lobby-space in the center, with doors to enter the property sandwiched between them. All of the lodge’s individual rooms are at an elevation, giving you a view that’s absolutely uncompromised even with heavy
