Spiral House 100

Spiral House in Phoenix For Sale

It is not often such an iconic structure comes on the market, as a serious offering to the public. Even more so, when that structure was designed by the iconic Frank Lloyd Wright, the potential sale becomes that more attention getting. To make things even more interesting, the home was designed specifically for his son and daughter-in-law, David and Gladys Wright.

The home is currently owned by Zach Rawling and was purchased for $2.4 million in 2012. His initial plan when purchasing the home was to run it into a museum, then donate it to the School of Architecture at Taliesin. However, this plan met with stiff opposition from the neighborhood due to traffic and publicity concerns adversely affecting the neighborhood. Now, the home is on the market for $12.95 million.

The Spiral House was labeled on the original plans by Frank Lloyd Wright as a model of how to live in the Southwest. His idea for the home was to perfectly harmonize the way a building relates to its environment. The round shape became a signature of his work in later years, including the Guggenheim Museum.

Located on 5.9 acres with a view of Camelback Mountain, the Spiral House is 2,553 square feet and was built in 1952. It currently has an application pending for historic preservation. The home features three bedrooms and four baths, with a cantilevered spiral walk-up access to the house. Inside, the home features the concrete block construction with elegant Philippine mahogany accents. The property includes a 360 square-foot guest house. The signature ‘March Balloons’ carpets and furnishings in the living area were custom designed by Wright.

David and Gladys Wright often referred to the Spiral House as their Taj Mahal, and understood the uniqueness of the building they called home.

Decor July/ August issue.  Architect Bob White of Forest Studio in Laguna Beach and M.Elle Design  Marie Carson created a beautiful and mellow series of spaces. Certainly we enjoyed working on this project. Last year ADG Eco Lighting completed several other projects with both the Architect and Designer. One was for a Major League Baseball Player in Crystal Cove.

For those of you that read articles about sustainable or eco lighting companies, and peruse the pages of magazines like Period Homes and Traditional building, there are a few myths to dispel.  Eco does not mean screw in an LED light bulb or put in a compact fluorescent bulb. And many of the companies in “Green sections” call themselves Green but are merely selling a component of green. 

Companies like Architectural Detail Group, Inc and ADG Eco Lighting embrace the process of manufacturing products and the impact those products have on the earth. ADG does not have a LEED building, or count the carbon molecules as offset. the Founders and teams at ADG do practice and strive to continually get the message across that sustainability is a mind set.  Gerald Olesker, ceo and founder, is consistently insuring that scrap is at its lowest level in the shop, while his teams also are effective at processing. Sr. Designer and factory management run by Joey Gennaro, looks at processes like water jet and laser cutting to next products and reduce waste as well as free up man power.    

Efficiency with sustainability seems to be a buzz these days, but the question is were teh early settlers in the west efficient. By definition yes, but by practical means, no. ADG takes a similar mind set. What it takes to be a Green Entrepreneur is shear will-power and determination. Green Entrepreneur, Gerald Olesker looks at the goal and incredibly insures that the client’s needs will be met as well as vendors and ADG Team members.
