The Kraus House

One of Frank Lloyd Wright’s last commissioned Usonian-style homes, the Kraus House grows out of a hill and overlooks a small persimmon grove in Kirkwood, MO. The house features a carport, attached shed, zero 90 degree angles, and a stunning studio.

Here is a gallery of some (illegal) photos I took during my recent visit. Check out the unique drawer shape in the bathroom, the origami chairs in the living room, and the pronounced cantilevered roof off the studio. The master bed is in the shape of a parallelogram and requires custom sheets. The house also has three Taliesin lamps.

This House, on Youtube, did a complete video tour of the Kraus House and provides more detail.
