Frank lloyd wright’s neils house was completed in 1951 and since then only two people have owned the architectural masterpiece. the house was designed in close collaboration between the architect and the architecture-savvy owners. also because neil was worked in stone and the architectural material distribution was used, the house is characterized by unusual features for a residential house, such as the stone chosen for the cladding and the aluminum window frames instead of the usual wooden frames. Plus, this is the only Wright design that uses marble walls.
In Wright’s words, the goal of the house is to create “affordable, beautiful housing for a democratic America.” an L-shaped floor plan positions the living and sleeping areas separately and places the living room on the short side of the L, while the sleeping area is on the long side and ends in the carport. It also has the bedrooms and a gallery that leads to the main entrance. The publicly visible house remains private thanks to the surrounding vegetation.
