AUSTIN RESIDENCE (1951 - S.345)
   
Austin Residence 1951-1954. Gabrielle and Charlcy V. Austin Residence Drawing Negatives, 1951-1954 (1951 - S.345). Designed by Frank Lloyd Wright in 1951, it was completed in 1954 on a two-acre sloping lot. Walls were constructed of Dessert Rubblestone and concrete in the manner of Taliesin West. The walls slope in as they rise. Forms were constructed, filled with rock, and concrete was then poured into the forms. Like many of Wright’s Usonian homes, floors were concrete embedded with pipe for the radiant heating system, and tinted Cherokee red. Cypress was used on the walls and ceilings as was most of the furniture. The Living Room included built-in seating as well as a massive fireplace. The Workspace (kitchen) ceiling is 18' high, capped with a skylight. Although Wright specified cedar shingles, asphalt shingles where used, most likely due to cost. One of only two homes in South Carolina, the other is Auldbrass. Wright named the home "Broad Margin." From a set of twelve original B&W negatives of the Austin blueprints.

Description: Caption on Face: " Oak Park, Ill.: The Davenport House is an excellent example of a small Wright home. (Fourth of Six) Wright/Goldberger. NYT Pictures/Yuichi Idaka".

Article pasted to verso (Excerpt): "Oak Park, Ill. - The moment a workman comes in here, he takes one look around and says, ‘Oh, this house is one of his, isn’t it?’ Then he groans and lets you know how much more work it’s going to mean for him," said Jeannette Fields, sitting in the living room of her 77-year-old house. Mrs. Fields did not have to say who ‘he’ is - her house was designed by Frank Lloyd Wright, who lived in Oak park from 1889 until 1909. In that period and the years just following, Wright designed or altered almost 30 houses here and in neighboring River Forest, where the Field’s house was built originally for Arthur Davenport in 1901... Several Wright houses have sold recently for about $170,000, about 20 to 25 percent more than other homes in the neighborhood..." Photographed by Yuichi Idaka for the New York Times.

It exemplifies the modern exploration of free, open spatial planning and it is one of America’s architectural treasures." Title page.

The story of this process illustrated the difficulties of rehabilitating a damaged building of unusual design and historic importance..." Gift from Kathryn Smith. (First Edition)

Title: Henderson Residence (1901 - S.057) circa 1901.

Description: View of the Living Room, Fireplace and Library from the Dining Room. The Henderson Residence was one of Wright’s earliest Prairie styled homes and the only one in Elmhurst. In1900, with the Bradley Residence (S.052) and the Prairie style fully blossomed. In 1901 came the Willits Residence (S.054). There was a slight departure with the Hickox Residence (S.056). But the Henderson Residence is authentic Prairie. In essence the Henderson Residence was his fourth Prairie styled house. The massive twelve foot wide brick fireplace centers the home. The deep beams span the width of the Living Room. Two-light gas wall sconces and built-in cabinets line the Library wall. The radiator were left exposed. Most likely photographed by Henry Fuermann. For more information see our Wright Study on the Henderson Residence.

Title: A conversation with Frank Lloyd Wright and Hugh Downs 1953.

Description: Frank Lloyd Wright photographed during the filming of the program, "Conversations with Elder Wise Men -- A Visit with Frank Lloyd Wright" Episode 105, filmed on May 8, 1953, Chicago. The host for the program was Hugh Downs. Clipping on verso: "Frank Lloyd Wright, brilliant American architect, will be presented in a conversation with Hugh Downs of NBC’s Chicago staff, Sunday, May 17, at 2:30 p.m. CT over WNBQ - Channel 5 and NBC. This will be the fifth in a series of filmed conversations with distinguished figures of this age." Stamped on clipping: "May 20 1953." Note: Interesting to note the chair Wright brought to the interview. It appears to be a side chair designed in 1939 for the Lloyd Lewis Residence (S.265). This placed Wright much higher than Downs, forcing him to continually look up at Wright during the interview.

Title: Clarence W. Sondern Residence Armchair, 1993 (1939 - S.279).

Description: Clarence Sondern, a laboratory director of a chemical company in Kansas City. The Sondern house was designed by Wright as a Usonian home in 1939. Wright designed three chairs for the home, published in "Frank Lloyd Wright Monograph 1937-1941 (6)," Pfeiffer, p.183. 1) "Lounge Chair." This chair (pictured) appears to be different than what Wright designed. "Revised chair details:" 2) Upholstered seats and 3) Dining Chair. This chair (pictured) appears to be a closer representation of #2, but with a few minor changes. #3, Dining Chair was also produced, but again with changes. In 1948, Arnold Adler (1948 - S.307) purchased the home and hired Wright to remodel and double the size of the home. This armchair was manufactured of cypress and cypress-faced plywood with upholstery, 30.5 x 24.75 x 26.25. A matching chair was sold at Christie's on May 12, 2005, for $24,000. A pair of Dining Chairs (#3) sold at Wright's Auction on December 11, 2014, for $19,000. They were originally in the Domino Pizza collection.

Date: 1992

Title: Auldbrass, The Plantation Complex Designed by Frank Lloyd Wright. A Documented History of Its South Carolina Lands (Hard Cover) (Published by Southern Historical Press, Inc., Greenville, SC)

Author: Loring, Jessica Stevens

Description: "Old Brass" was the name given to a tract of land in South Carolina that includes over 4,000 acres. "In the mid 1930s the Savanna River Lumber Co. Which owned the tract of land slid into bankruptcy. C. Leigh Stevens took over the responsibility of reorganizing the company, and ended up "with its shares held by Stevens." Old Brass was one of many holdings owned by the reorganized Savanna River Lumber Co. The modern history of "Auldbrass" which Wright adapted from Old Brass started in 1939 when C. Leigh Stevens commissioned Frank Lloyd Wright to create a plantation complex of buildings for his southern home. In 1962, after her father’s death, Jessica Stevens Loring and her brother inherited the Plantation, she bought out her brother. This volume studies the complete history of the area surrounding and including Auldbrass from 1737 through 1938. There are a few references to Frank Lloyd Wright’s Audbrass, and one photograph.

Title: Auldbrass, Frank Lloyd Wright’s Southern Plantation (Hard Cover DJ) (Published by Riozzoli International Publications, Inc., New York)

Author: De Long, David G.; Silver, Joel

Description: Although Frank Lloyd Wright designed more than 1,000 projects during his long and prolific career, Auldbrass Plantation, in Yemassee, South Carolina, is the only plantation he ever designed. It is also one of the largest and most complex projects he ever undertook. Wright had an unusually intense commitment to Auldbrass, and worked on it, off and on, for more than twenty years, from 1938 until his death in 1959. Because Auldbrass was private and because it fell into disrepair in the 1960s after the owners' death, it was rarely photographed or studied, and as a consequence little has been known about this major work. With a recently completed restoration and new photography, this book affords a rare opportunity to see one of Wright's greatest works, as the master himself originally envisioned it. Through photos, plans, and drawings, we see what Wright planned, and how it has finally all been either restored or realized for the first time. In 1986, film producer Joel Silver (Die Hard, Lethal Weapon, 48 Hours, Predator, Romeo Must Die, The Matrix, and over forty other films) bought Auldbrass. He had earlier bought and meticulously restored Wright's famous 1923 Storer House in Hollywood. Now he has again collaborated with Wright's grandson, architect Eric Lloyd Wright, who restored the Storer House, to restore the Auldbrass Plantation.

A trio of architects came up with the ambitious plan as a way to preserve the 80-year-old Ward Willits House, whose present owner can neither continue its upkeep nor find another buyer. One of the architects, former Wilmette resident David Sellers, of Warren, Vt., said the Sheridan Rd. house is Wright’s ‘first great masterpieces.’ He said that under the proposal, architects, students, art historians and other interested parties would live there up to a week, no more than 10 at a time. ‘The basic notion is that one who wants to study residential architecture do it under the conditions it was designed for – to live in it,’ Sellers said. ‘You want to spend more than an hour in the thing, to see the morning sun some up and see the evening sun go down.’ " Acquired from the archives of the Chicago Sun Times.
