AMERICA’S MOST FAMOUS ARCHITECT Frank Lloyd Wright (1867-1959) A giant in the world of architecture, Frank Lloyd Wright is widely regarded as the greatest American architect of all time. His working life spanned over 70 years and two centuries. Through early adoption and adaptation of new technology, and by taking full advantage of new options in home-building materials and techniques of mass production, Wright defined the modern era of residential home design.

Usonian Homes: “Out of the Ground and Into the Light!” 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.” –Frank Lloyd Wright

Usonian home designs are based on a philosophy Wright called “organic architecture.” His goal was to create “a harmonious place in which to live”; thoughtful, beautiful homes made with natural materials and elements that could be mass-produced for maximum cost-effectiveness, yet custom-tailored to suit the individual needs of each and every homeowner. In 1937, the first Usonian home (Jacobs 1) was built by Wright for Herbert Jacobs and his family near Madison, WI. The Lindal Imagine Series’ Madison design (page 24-25), is a translation of Jacobs 1. In 2019, Jacobs 1 was among eight Wright structures to be awarded the first-ever modern architecture designation on UNESCO’s World Heritage Site list for the United States, along with Fallingwater, Hollyhock House, Taliesin, Taliesin West, Unity Temple, the Frederick C. Robie House, and the Solomon R. Guggenheim Museum. Wright went on to design more than 100 Usonian homes for the urban and suburban middle class.

IMAGINE SERIES In partnership with the Frank Lloyd Wright Foundation, Lindal Cedar Homes has created a new line of Usonian-inspired homes: The Lindal Imagine Series; uniting the enduring design principles of a Usonian home with current developments in technology, construction and design theory. The result is a harmonious synthesis—a beautiful, functional home that accommodates and expresses the way people live today. “The Lindal Imagine Series The homes are aesthetically reflects a modern embodiment beautiful, modest in size, yet of Frank Lloyd Wright’s spacious and filled with light. principles; sensitive to the They are thoughtfully designed attributes of Usonian design to integrate seamlessly with their while meeting the demands of surroundings, whether in a rural, contemporary living.” urban, or suburban setting. The – Stuart Graff, Lindal Imagine Series reflects President and CEO Frank Lloyd Wright’s belief that the The Frank Lloyd Wright buildings we live in affect the kinds Foundation of people we become.

MEET THE DESIGNERS

Aris Georges

Trina Lindal

Architect-trained custom home designer Aris Georges’ love of architecture began in his teens, when he worked in his tutor’s architectural studio while preparing for university. After studying architecture at the University of Florence, Italy, Aris moved to the United States, where he completed his Bachelor of Architectural Studies and Master of Architecture degrees at the Frank Lloyd Wright School of Architecture. Aris was on the School’s team that designed homes for the Lindal Architects Collaborative program, founded in 2009. He went on to develop the OM Studio Design Portfolio, a line of mid-century modern-style homes for Lindal Cedar Homes, using the Lindal Elements grid system. Aris continues to work with Lindal clients to create unique custom home designs, as well as tailoring existing floor plans and home styles to meet individual needs. As an advocate of Frank Lloyd Wright’s principle of “organic design” and an enthusiastic proponent of the Lindal system, he is excited to participate in this venture with Lindal Cedar Homes and the Frank Lloyd Wright Foundation.

Trina Lindal is a thirdgeneration member of the Lindal family and a graduate of the Frank Lloyd Wright School of Architecture at Taliesin. Her final work for her Masters program was to help launch the Lindal Imagine Series of homes based on the principles of Wright’s Usonian designs. Her time at Taliesin helped her articulate the need for open, sustainable, and beautiful architecture, big or small—and her original design contribution to the Lindal Imagine Series, Highland Park (pages 32-33), supports that philosophy.


THE LINDAL IMAGINE SERIES Floor plans: Six Shared Design Principles 1

Open Floor Plans: Spacious, airy rooms for eating, entertaining and enjoying the view.

2

Strong Horizontal Emphasis: Built low to the ground, with flat or gently sloped roofs; “a companion to the horizon.”

3

4

Integrated with Nature: Floor-toceiling windows, organic materials (think wood, glass, stone and concrete), and broad roof overhangs that extend the interior beams beyond the walls of the home. Filled with Light: Large picture windows and walls of glass, bands of clerestory windows, louvers and decorative elements to filter sunlight and create an interior interplay of light and shadow.

5

Energy Efficient: Carefully oriented on the lot to take advantage of the passive heating and cooling effects of the sun and wind.

6

Flexible Floor Plans: The modularity of the homes—along with the grid system that dictates the graceful proportions—allows for great flexibility and customization. Add a basement, garage, or studio apartment. Change the roof pitch, or orient the house to take advantage of sun, wind, and shade. Every home can be adapted to suit the build site and the needs of the homeowner.

A MODERN APPROACH TO DESIGN The home designs in this book have been adapted to work within the Lindal Elements system. We’ve added more bathrooms as well as larger kitchens and bedrooms to the basic floor plan, and placed a master suite on the main level. Home designs can be modified with either a flat or pitched roof. Our flexible, modular designs accommodate either the traditional Usonian carport or a garage. We offer new material choices for siding, flooring, decks and doors. The Lindal Imagine Series relies on the efficiency of the Lindal system to produce a custom-designed home in a cost-effective manner. Of course, every Lindal home built is backed by our industry-exclusive Lifetime Structural Warranty.

The Lindal Elements System Here is a little insight into how we created the proprietary modern Lindal Elements system that provides the rare synthesis of efficiency, flexibility, and predictability. We began by returning to Company founder Sir Walter Lindal’s original concept of a post-and-beam system of interchangeable parts which is organized to maximize the structural efficiency of each component. The Imagine Series of homes showcases contemporary planning principles; open floor plans, strong horizontal emphasis, designs integrated with nature, homes filled with light, energy efficiency, and flexible floor plans.

SILVERTON

Translated from Gordon House, one of the last Usonian designs in Frank Lloyd Wright’s career, the Silverton commands a flexible design in a T-shaped layout. The great room can be flipped to the views while the stacked bedroom wings can adjust for size without losing the essential beauty of the design.

WILLOUGHBY

Translated from Penfield House, one of the few Usonian designs in Frank Lloyd Wright’s career designed for a tall client (6' 8"). The design grows in linear geometry and can be ideal for a narrow/long lot. The striking exterior wood feature, shown on the right, is offered as an option to the standard design.

CRYSTAL SPRINGS Crystal Springs, 41921 NY

Inspired by Wright’s Bachman-Wilson home design, this home stacks two bedrooms above the kitchen/dining/utility core, giving the living room a generous double-height ceiling with a wall of glass that makes the home seem larger than its 2490 square feet. The utility core allows for a varied circulation pattern and direct access to the kitchen from the entry. The upper mezzanine wraps around the hearth, overlooking the living room, and can be used as a study. 18

MADISON TWO

A Lindal translation of Wright’s first Usonian home, Jacobs 1; which was added to UNESCO’s register of World Heritage Sites in 2019.

An expanded version of the original design, the Madison Two is inspired by Jacobs 1, the first Usonian home, built in 1937. It embodies the elements of Usonian design, with a sheltered entryway next to a covered carport, and two “wings” that flank a private backyard. All of the rooms have a connection to nature via large glass doors. Light enters interior spaces through clerestory windows with the use of varying roof elevations. Utility functions are housed in the partial basement. 24

LANSING

The Lansing is a translation of Goetsch-Winckler house, one of the early Usonian houses built in Okemos, Michigan, in 1940. The Lansing is a cozy house that features an ample living and dining room with a fireplace nook, integrated kitchen, two bedrooms, one bath, a carport and a private walled garden. The play of the roof levels with upper clerestory windows and the simple geometry give this design a minimalist, yet rich, appeal. 26

MIRROR LAKE

Frank Lloyd Wright’s final Usonian design; Seth Peterson Cottage, explored the concept of tiny homes long before it became popular in modern home design. The open floor plan in the Mirror Lake version is ideally suited to creating a spacious, livable home in just 1256 square feet. Lindal offers two versions of this cottage design. The Mirror Lake One hews closely to Wright’s original floor plan, whereas in Mirror Lake Two the kitchen is integrated into the great room. 28

HIGHLAND PARK

This compact linear plan is perfectly suited for any size lot, including a small urban infill, while still maintaining privacy. The street side is buffered by the carport with a roofline that extends to shelter the entryway. Upon entering the home, the ceiling height is low with a glimpse of the wall of glass in the great room where the ceiling opens up to 11' 8" and includes doors that open to a backyard garden. The hearth is in the center of the home, with the kitchen wrapping around it. 32

Development of the Lindal Imagine Series The connection between Lindal Cedar Homes and Frank Lloyd Wright began with Lindal’s founder, Sir Walter Lindal (1919-2011), whose approach to home design was influenced by Wright’s early experimentation with prefabrication and system-built homes. Lindal’s connection to Wright continues to this day through the homes in the Lindal Imagine Series, inspired by Wright’s Usonian designs. Lindal is proud to be the only home design company to partner with and receive the endorsement of the Frank Lloyd Wright Foundation. Established by Wright in 1940, the Foundation’s mission is to inspire people to discover and embrace an architecture for better living through meaningful connections to nature, the arts, and each other. Wright’s legacy, reflected in contemporary work around sustainable and affordable architecture and excellence in design, is of even greater importance today than in his own time. For every Imagine Series home sold, Lindal donates a portion of the proceeds to further the Foundation’s educational programs and ensure that Wright’s legacy continues. Lindal and the Foundation also donate a portion of the proceeds to any architecture school whose students and faculty are engaged in the design of the Imagine Series, where they learn Wright’s principles in the course of their work.

Frank Lloyd Wright School of Architecture In 2011, Lindal embarked on a collaboration with the Frank Lloyd Wright School of Architecture. The School offered comprehensive study toward a Master of Architecture degree by interpreting and building on Wright’s themes and processes within the context of our rapidly-changing world. Lindal worked with students and faculty at the School to develop Frank Lloyd Wright-inspired designs for the Lindal Architects Collaborative and Lindal Imagine Series home lines. Imagine Series designers Aris Georges and Trina Lindal are both graduates of the School. In 2020, the School ended its affiliation with the Frank Lloyd Wright Foundation, changed its name to The School of Architecture, and relocated to two campuses in Acrosanti and Cosanti, Arizona.
