The Sondern-Adler House By Frank Lloyd Wright

Dec 17, 2018

Category: Living

It’s not often that you see homes designed by one of the most legendary architects of the past century; it’s especially rare when they emerge from obscurity somewhere within the midwestern United States. The Sondern-Adler House in Kansas City is one such home — designed by none other than Frank Lloyd Wright, this minimalist dwelling includes some of the architect’s most prominent quirks mixed with a splash of inner-city style.

The home draws heavily from the early L-shape designs that were a trademark of the architect, utilizing a flat roof and clerestory windows that run the full length of the home. Situated within a generous swathe of greenery, the exterior of the space is adorned in mismatched brick with a tiered back and front porch area that plays host to a bevy of potted plants, an illustrious pond, and a selection of trees and shrubbery. However, the interior of the home is the real show-stopper — a 900-square-foot living area that was later expanded into a 2,965-square-foot space — home to a mishmash of cultural, vintage, and period-correct design elements.
