Home by Frank Lloyd Wright Protégé Hits the Market
A Barrington home designed by Dennis Blair, who studied at Frank Lloyd Wright’s Taliesin West school and worked with Wright on the Guggenheim Museum, is for sale. The most remarkable aspect of the 1972 home is its interior, which was designed in a spiral-like configuration to accommodate a two-story ficus tree.
“Blair’s concept for this 1972 home centers on a 16-by-16-foot atrium in the middle of the structure,” Lou Zucaro, who represents the home for Baird & Warner, tells AD PRO. “Spread out over six mini-levels, the various spaces in the home wind up and around the atrium. While various plants have been swapped out over the years, the ficus tree has been growing in the ground under the house since it was built.” The asking price for the home at 3 Wood Rock Road is $770,000.
