You’re in the Wright Place!

Harold Price, Sr. House (1954)

pricehouse

In 1952, Harold Price, Sr. had visited Wright at Taliesin West to discuss building a multi-story building in Bartlesville, Oklahoma. The result was a commission to build the 19-story, 221-foot tall Price Tower. Not long thereafter – 1954 – the roughly 5,000 square foot Price Residence was built on nine acres along a hill just off of Tatum Drive in Paradise Valley.

A SPACIOUS DESERT HOME

Sprawling what seems to be a football field in length, the residence boasts ten rooms! Included are five master bedrooms and two servant’s bedrooms — all with their own baths. An open-air atrium is surrounded by a living room and kitchen. The bedroom wings are on either end of the building. Interestingly, the atrium incorporates a unique design that allows the roof to “float” above the walls on steel pylons. This allows for breezes to flow through the gap in-between. In addition, a skylight illuminates a fountain in the atrium. The concrete block in the walls is more reminiscent of that used in today’s construction, rather than that used by Wright in earlier designs.

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!
