Initially developed by architect John Lincoln in 1945, the project encapsulates some interesting features: “Frank Lloyd Wright’s influence is evident in Lincoln’s use of stone, corner windows and a flat roof. Due to the nature of the materials and construction methods used on the original building, the design process was akin to an archaeological investigation, revealing the home’s unique details, and incorporating its materials and methods into a new design“. The outdoor areas-garage, swimming pool, studio and patios- were organized with the help of natural rock outcroppings.
