Usonian Design

Frank Lloyd Wright designed but a single home in Alabama. It was one of his classic Usonian homes, designed in 1939 for Stanley and Mildred Rosenbaum and referred to as one of the “purest examples of Wright’s unique style.” Constructed of cypress, glass and brick, the original house was completed in 1940; Wright added two new wings as per a Rosenbaum request in 1948. 

Wright’s Usonian style typically included flat roofs, large overhanging eaves, plenty of glass and flowing space. But perhaps one of the most incredible innovations for the time was his use of radiant heat provided by hot water that circulated though pipes imbedded in the concrete floors of the home.

The Rosenbaums were the sole owners of the home until 1999. It has been meticulously restored and is now a museum piece, illustrating Wright’s classic Usonian style.
