Frank Lloyd Wright’s Louis Penfield House
Arriving at the home you are first stopped at the gate which clearly announces that you have arrived somewhere special. It sets the stage for your experience.
Wright situated the house to face the Chagrin River so you actually see the rear of the home as you enter the property.
Wright liked to hide entrances. Can you spot the front door?
The door is to the left of our beautiful Architect, Sarah. It perfectly blends into the vertical glass windows at the foyer and stairwell.
The vertical articulation is unusual for Wright. He is known for his long horizontal lines that define his Prairie Style architecture. Louis Penfield was 6’-8” tall and the house was designed with that in mind.
