"Of the land, not on it"

Updated: Nov 30, 2023

The quote "of the land, not on it" was popularized by Frank Lloyd Wright. He valued architecture that works in tandem with the surrounding landscape rather than being divorced from it. This custom home in Middleton utilizes traditional prairie concepts with a contemporary architectural language. Low pitch hip roofs create an unobstructed view of the Wisconsin landscape surrounding the home. Warm toned stone is reminiscent of local limestone quarries. Wood throughout the interior brings a comfort, unmatched by other materials.

The home is a prime example of how a custom home can bring the architectural lessons of the master's into everyday suburbia.
