SETH PETERSON COTTAGE (1958 - S.430)
   
Seth Peterson Cottage 2017 (1958 - S.430). After visiting the Arnold Residence on a cross-country trip from New York to Seattle, we headed west to hook up with Interstate 90. It occurred to us that the Seth Peterson Cottage was in the general direction of our trajectory, and decided to give it a visit. We were feeling lucky, even though daylight was fading. Frank Lloyd Wright designed the cottage in 1958, his smallest residential gems, 880 square feet. It was constructed of native sandstone, Philippine mahogany and glass. Although almost 70 years younger than Wright, Peterson shared his birthday. He was drawn to architecture at a young age, and the designs of Wright. Mostly the designs of Wright. After graduating from high school in 1954, he applied to the Taliesin Fellowship but was turn down a number of times. Peterson persisted from a different angle. He commissioned Wright to design a small cottage. The plans   were finished in April, 1959, and Peterson began construction. As the cottage neared completion one year after Wright’s death, tragedy struck. On Palm Sunday, April 10, 1960, one day after the first anniversary of Wright’s death, less than one month before his 24th birthday, Seth Peterson took his own life. Located above Mirror Lake, the Seth Peterson Cottage is rectangular in shape., While the front side of the cottage soars upward, the back half of the cottage is constructed of stone. The workspace and bath rises up above the living space, and the fireplace mass is approximately two feet higher. In an effort to expedite adding these photographs to this website, we have dispensed with a description for each photograph.
