28 Jun NEW! LINDAL PARTNERS WITH THE FRANK LLOYD WRIGHT FOUNDATION TO CREATE HOMES BASED ON WRIGHT’S USONIAN DESIGNS
Working with the Frank Lloyd Wright Foundation and the School of Architecture at Taliesin, Lindal offers the Lindal Imagine Series, seven striking modern designs ranging from 780SF to about 2850SF inspired by the work of architect Frank Lloyd Wright. The new effort unites the enduring design principles of Wright’s Usonian homes with current developments in technology, construction and design theory.
This effort responds to the surge of interest in mid-century modern homes that are affordable and aesthetically pleasing. These homes will meet that demand; they are unique, are integrated with nature, and have the feel of a much larger home. The principles that guided Frank Lloyd Wright, such as “organic architecture” of harmony, sustainability and integration with nature, are celebrated in these homes. Per Wright, “the natural materials, open floor plans and walls of glass work synergistically together to achieve the sense of spaciousness and vista we desire in order to liberate the people living in the house.”
The result of the new series is a harmonious synthesis — a beautiful, functional home that accommodates and expresses the way people live today. The homes are aesthetically beautiful, modest in size, yet spacious and filled with light. They are thoughtfully designed to blend seamlessly with their surroundings, whether in a rural, urban or suburban setting.
“Usonian” describes approximately sixty homes designed by Wright in the 1930’s and 1940’s, including those in the Usonia Historical District in Pleasantville, NY, a National Register of Historic Places site. The new homes share six design principles with the original Usonian house plans: each has an open floor plan, a strong horizontal emphasis, and is integrated with nature. Additionally, each home emphasizes an interplay with light and shadow, is energy efficient, and has flexible floor plans. Homebuyers can add basements and garages, or alter the angle of the roof or its pitch.
According to Stuart Graff, President and CEO of the Frank Lloyd Wright Foundation, “The Lindal Imagine series reflects a modern embodiment of Frank Lloyd Wright’s principles; sensitive to the attributes of Usonian design while meeting the demands of contemporary living.”
The designers for the new series are Aris Georges – who taught on faculty at the School of Architecture at Taliesin for many years, and Trina Lindal, a graduate of the School.
