    Classic Home 072

    ArchWeek Image

    Exterior overview of Classic Home 072, Boomer Residence, by Frank Lloyd Wright, Architect.

    This modest one-bedroom, two-bathroom desert cottage was designed for a single person. The plan is based on a grid of four-foot (1.2-meter) parallelograms which are, in turn, contained within a large triangular arrangement of rubblestone walls. A large central stone column rises through the two floors, enclosing fireplaces, chimney, and bathrooms. A large pitched roof opens to the north, providing ample light while shading the interior from the direct glare of the Arizona sun. The ground floor contains the primary living spaces together with a carport and chauffeur's quarters. Most of the upper floor is devoted to a large bedroom, surrounded on three sides by a deck. The second bathroom and small servant's room are also on the upper floor.
