ROBERT LLEWELLYN WRIGHT HOUSE (1958 - S.358)
 
Robert Llewellyn Wright (November 5, 1903 - February 22, 1986, Bethesda, Maryland) Llewellyn graduated from law school, and established a practice in Chicago, where he met and married Elizabeth Bryant Kehler (July 21, 1910 - November 17, 2005) in 1933. They moved to Washington, D.C., where he continued his legal career, including a job at the U.S. Department of Justice. They had two sons, Thomas Llewellyn (1935), Timothy Kehler (1938), and one daughter, Elizabeth Catherine (1943). His father designed a home for him in 1953, construction began in 1957 and was completed in 1958. The plans and working drawings were completed by John Howe and Curtis Besinger. Apprentice Robert Beharka supervised the construction. The home is two-stories, three bedroom, 1,800 square feet concrete block structure. The house is composed of intersection and concentric segments of a circle, or "hemicycles" as Wright called it. The lower level included the Living, Dining, Workspace (Kitchen), Powder Room and the Terrace with Pool. The upper level includes three Bedrooms, full Bath, Gallery (Hall) and a Balcony off the Master Bedroom. Construction was delayed for a few years. Wright had told his son to find a lot that builders wouldn’t touch. He found just that. An unbuildable lot in Bethesda, Maryland. The grounds were landscaped by his brother Lloyd Wright in 1960. A "hemicycles" shaped coffee table and six foot stools, designed by Wright, mimicking the shape of the home were added later, as was an adaptation of the "March Balloons" design for the Living Room carpet. According to Pfeiffer, on a visit to Taliesin West shortly before his death, he said, "The best thing I ever did in my life was to build that house that Dad designed for me", Monograph 8. Llewellyn lived in the home for nearly 26 years until his death, Elizabeth, who lived to be 95, 47 years. Thomas Llewellyn Wright continued living in the home after his father’s death.
