Frank Lloyd Wright's Hemicycle Spring House Looking to Raise $100,000 USD for Restoration

The Spring House – the only private home in Florida designed by the great Frank Lloyd Wright – is looking for some help to preserve its legacy. Built in the ’50s for George and Clifton Lewis and their large family, the design of this home embodies the final and shortest stylistic phase in Wright’s career: the hemicycle style. “The plan is characterized by concentric and intersecting circles, while the elevations are consistent with Wright’s other designs in how they accentuate the horizontal.” After her husband passed away in 1996, Clifton lived in the unique home until 2011, when she then formed the Spring House Institute – a not-for-profit organization dedicated to preserving the historic property and turning it into a public legacy.
