THE WHALE ROCK
The giant white outcrop of granite, nicknamed for its humpback shape,
is both foundation and central design element.
THE HOUSE SITE
Wright’s design uses his typical juxtaposition of straight,
low lines and sharp angles atop the tumbling rocks and reflective lake.

The cement grid that holds the triangular skylights was created as a single unit.
Massaro’s deck furniture is made from millennia-old hand-carved mahogany tree stumps.
THE ORIGINAL PLAN
A Wright site plan shows how the architect envisioned the house’s positioning.

THE DINING ROOM
Triangles repeat throughout the house, in cement and in mahogany,
seen here in the dining room. The chairs are modern productions of Wright designs.
THE MASTER BEDROOM
Layers of granite form the walls of the main bedroom; the triangle-hexagon pattern is repeated in the oxblood poured-concrete floor.
