Lykes Home / Frank Lloyd Wright


This is a actually the last house Frank Lloyd Wright designed. But sadly, he wasn’t around to see the Lykes Home in Phoenix, Arizona, USA actually get constructed.

The plans date back to 1959. That’s right, the year of the legendary architect’s death. It was designed for Norman and Aimee Lykes, who then took on Wright’s apprentice, John Rattenbury to finish those plans and oversee its construction.

Building began in 1967, with the house completed in 1968, with the Lykes living in the house until 1994. A year later it was fully renovated by the second owners, updating for their own needs, but without ripping out the heart of the place.

This place is on the market for $3,600,000 — via WowHaus
