Modern Masterpiece Designed by Frank Lloyd Wright's Chief Draftsman
Even those who aren't enthralled by architecture know of Frank Lloyd Wright, widely regarded as the greatest American architect of all time. But fewer people are familiar with John Howe, Wright's chief draftsman who he often described as "the pencil in my hand." Today, we're looking at an exquisite example of modern architecture designed by Howe.

From the open floor plan to the art-glass windows, Wright's influence is evident throughout the 7,000-square-foot residence. Elements of stone, wood and glass connect the home with its wooded surroundings, blurring the lines between interior and exterior.
In 2007, original concept drawings were used to renovate and expand many rooms of the house, including the kitchen, family room, bathrooms and guest wing. New heating, cooling, sound and lighting systems were also seamlessly integrated, keeping this home's iconic 20th century style intact while infusing 21st century amenities.
