Nestled amidst the rolling hills of Hillsborough, California, lies a unique architectural gem – the Sidney Bazett House. Designed by the legendary Frank Lloyd Wright in 1939, this hexagonal-shaped home embodies his iconic Usonian style.

Hexagon Patterns

Characterized by its emphasis on functionality and connection with nature, the Bazett House features red concrete floors with a scored hexagon pattern, reflecting the building’s geometric motif.  Despite its original purpose as a residence for the Bazett family, the house ultimately played a pivotal role in shaping the work of another prominent architect, Joseph Eichler.

Renting the home during its early years, Eichler became deeply influenced by Wright’s Usonian principles. This experience would later inspire him to develop and market his own line of affordable, modernist homes, bringing a touch of Wright’s vision to a wider audience.

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!
