Life magazine named this home the “Dream House” in 1934. The now homeowner writes, “The brilliance of Frank Lloyd Wright’s vision can only be experienced fully by living in one of his creations. There is something magical almost spiritual about being in a Wright space that leaves one transformed.”
The architectural detail is exquisite, with every nook, cranny and corner a site for sore eyes.
Frank Lloyd envisioned how the average American would live when designing this house. It was also one of the first homes in America to have underfloor heating.
We love the beautiful backyard with a unique overhang roof.
This home in Spain is constructed of container modules. Though it has a seemingly plain exterior, the interior will surprise you!
The space feels unexpectedly large thanks to an open-concept layout. A tree enclosed by glass walls offers an indoor-outdoor feel.

Black appliances add drama to the otherwise light and airy space. Floating kitchen cabinets provide extra storage.
