Millard House In Pasadena by Frank Lloyd Wright

By • May 3, 2011 •  Selected Work 

Millard House, also known as La Miniatura, is one of the four textile block houses designed by Frank Lloyd Wright.

It was commissioned by rare book dealer Alice Millard, for whom Wright had already designed a home in Chicago in 1906.

Built in 1923 in Pasadena, California, the house is listed on the National Register of Historic Places in 1976.

Internationally recognized as one of the most architecturally important properties in the world, the 4,230 square foot residence sits on nearly an acre of gardens.

The home has four bedrooms and four bathrooms, two kitchens, and a studio guest house that was designed by Frank Lloyd Wright’s son, Lloyd Wright, a year after the original home was completed.

Sold in 2008 for $7 million, sold again in 2009 for $5 million, the house is now back on the market at $4,995,000…

  1. Greg Allegretti, AIA says:

    Thank you for these wonderful images. I’ve seen drawings of this house, but never photographs. I never understood that the masonry units held a glazed lattice. I have studied Wright’s work for fourty years and I am still learning new things.

    There is nothing in this world like a Wright house.

    Gracias por compartir por esta vía proyectos tan lindos como éste…sin duda hoy en día el no poder visitar las obras en persona se acorta la distancia con el ciberespacio…sin dudas Wrigth fue, y seguirá siendo uno de los grandes íconos de la Arquitectura Orgánica.

    I love this house (as do i all of his works). While i had the fortune to be stationed in El Toro, i never had an opportunity to visit the site. I have found several sets of images depicting the main house, i have not been able to find the plans for the studio. If anyone can point me in the right direction? I would be grateful!
