Bernard Schwartz House, 1939, Two Rivers, WI. The Usonian homes, designed by Frank Lloyd Wright from 1936-1959, brought affordable design to the working class of the United States. This design is adapted from the perforated boards at the Schwartz House. In Wisconsin, Bernard Schwartz was ready to build a house for his family and gave Wright the opportunity to build his Usonian “Dream House,” which Schwartz had seen featured in Life Magazine. Wright modified the plans and went on to refine the design by pushing up the ceiling in the living area, making room for a stunning second-floor balcony overlooking the recreation room. This higher ceiling created space for his clerestory perforated boards, which allowed in light and cast interesting geometric shadows to endlessly delight his clients.
