The Millard House is a two-story structure with a flat roof and walls of concrete blocks. The blocks are arranged in a variety of patterns, creating a striking and dynamic exterior. The interior of the house is open and airy, with few walls and a large central living space. The house is also notable for its use of natural materials, such as wood and stone.

The Millard House was commissioned by Alice Millard, a wealthy art collector and friend of Wright’s. Millard was looking for a house that would reflect her own unique personality and style, and Wright’s design was the perfect fit. The house was built on a steep hillside, and Wright took advantage of the site to create a dramatic and unexpected structure.

About Me

Yvonne Carpenter-Ross

FLW Enthusiast & Webmaster

Architecture and home design have always fascinated me. As a young girl I enjoyed drawing floor plans, rearranging my parent’s furniture and playing with Lincoln Logs and Legos.  My passion has always been the architecture of Frank Lloyd Wright. Since I have been old enough to drive a car, I have visited Frank Lloyd Wright homes in the Chicagoland area and attended the Wright Plus house walks. Now, as co-owners of Northern Sky Designs, my husband & I are able to combine our website design skills and FLW travels to bring you this website! Enjoy!
