Andrew F. H. Armstrong Residence (1939)

Ogden Dunes, Indiana
HW #66

Located on a steep mountaineous landscape, Frank Lloyd Wright called this house a “dune dwelling”. As Wright arranged the structure to fit the difficult landscape, he arranged the plan so that different levels are based on different grids – at each change of level, the grid is turned 30 degrees. The top level is the master bedroom overlooking the Indiana dunes and Lake Michigan, the children’s bedroom with a southern exposure and the the utilities, a photographic darkroom, and servant’s room, on the northeast corner of the top floor. Then the first floor is occupied by the double storey living space and workspace, connected to a terrace. The level below is the carport and a concealed entry.
