Frank Lloyd Wright's Buffalo homes to be deemed historic?

Buffalo, Pure Contemporary's hometown, takes a great deal of pride in the Frank Lloyd Wright-designed homes. This past week the owners have prompted the Buffalo Preservation Board to delay designating the two properties as local historic landmarks for at least another four weeks.

I had the pleasure of working in the Davidson House at 57 Tillinghast Place (under the previous owners), and cannot adequately describe the beauty of his aesthetic. Wright liked to keep ceilings low, yet made the height two stories in the living room, complete with floor-to-ceiling windows. Another design gem -- as I ascended a few stairs to the owner's study, the ceiling height remained the same. Every time I headed for the study I felt as if I was in a magnificent scene from Alice in Wonderland. I had just begun working for Pure Contemporary and was overjoyed at the opportunity to step back in time into the mind of one of the greatest organic architects.

While I completely understand the owners' concerns for privacy and the right to renovate their homes, I couldn't imagine wanting to change any aspect of Wright's design and vision. Read the full article.

The house looks so wonderful. How I wish mine was pretty as that. Thanks to the architects for their big contributions in our architectural buildings. Keep up the good work! =)
