As one of the world’s architectural luminaries, Frank Lloyd Wright left his mark on American architecture with his stylish but straightforward concept of Usonian design, and this holiday home in Michigan presents a rare opportunity to call one your own — at least for a few nights. We love the mixture of original Lloyd Wright with Bauhaus furnishings that match the architect’s expressive signature style.
Established in 1946 as a cooperative development by a group of scientists, it is one of only four homes built by Frank Lloyd Wright in what was originally intended to be a planned community of over 20. Set outside of Kalamazoo an hour east of Lake Michigan, the rural 70-acre development known as The Acres has been granted historical status and placed on the National Register of Historical Places.
Discovered in a state of neglect by a couple whose expertise in research and technical design helped in the extensive restoration process, the home was brought back to its original beauty with a complete top-to-bottom update that carefully preserves the original design and materials.
