A US company is selling house kits based on the plans of famed architect Frank Lloyd Wright’s Usonian homes, tweaked for modern living.

Lindal Cedar Homes is based in Seattle and first announced its partnership with the Frank Lloyd Wright Foundation in 2018. Its Imagine Series of house kits is inspired by Wright’s 1930s Usonian designs, which the architect envisaged as low-cost, quick-build structures for families coming out of the Great Depression. Wright’s designs typically featured overhanging roofs, natural materials, open floor plans, and glass walls to foster a connection between indoor and outdoor living.

Lindal’s new generation of Wright-inspired homes continues this tradition—albeit for the modern family—and range from 900 sq ft to 3,000 sq ft. The company offers nine models. For example, The Madison by Lindal Cedar Homes is inspired by Wright’s first Usonian home, Jacobs 1, and spans 1,603 sq ft, with two bedrooms and two bathrooms.

The Crystal Springs model extends to 2,490 sq ft and riffs on Wright’s Bachman-Wilson House. It stacks two bedrooms above the kitchen/dining/utility core, giving the living room a generous double-height ceiling with a wall of glass.

Prices for the models are available upon request. According to an interview with the Wall Street Journal, the company has already sold 10 of the kit homes, four of which are complete. Prospective buyers can attend a webinar on Lindal’s Imagine Series of Usonian-style Homes on Wednesday, June 12, at 5 p.m. PT.
