The Storer House
At the Storer house, in Los Angeles, California, Frank Lloyd Wright created one of his most elegant small house plans. In a surprisingly compact space he created a flow of space between multiple levels that leaves the impression of a much larger house. Built in 1923, it was one of his several early experiments with concrete block.
As a work of art these prints are worth purchasing in their own right. For those of you interested in building a historically inspired house, these plans offer an excellent starting point. The design is organized around a split level concept, with the western portion of the house containing 4 bedrooms and 2 baths, while, � level up, the eastern portion contains a Dining Room and Kitchen, with a Living Room and roof decks above. There is an additional bedroom and bath off the kitchen. Terraces open off the various rooms, providing a seamless transition from the interior of the house to the surrounding hillside. This house relies strongly for its effect on the way in which it integrates its form into a steeply sloping hillside. Any meaningful adaptation of this design would need at least a medium slope to be effective. The house sits on a comfortably large suburban lot with views to the south. Excluding terraces and garage, the house has outside dimensions of approximately 48'x58'.

SHIPPING: Your drawings are shipped to you, by US Postal Service, rolled, not folded, in a Priority Mail tube.
IF YOU ARE PLANNING TO BUILD: These plans are NOT complete architectural drawings as might be required by your local permitting agency and do not contain all the structural, waterproofing and other details and information necessary for construction. But your local builder or architect should be able to adapt these drawings and add to them as necessary. What they do provide is accurate design information about a REAL Frank Lloyd Wright home, not a pseudo-Wright tract house as you will find in the house plan magazines on your supermarket shelf.
