Floor Plan and Orientation

SAMARA has 15 distinct, but interrelated areas. These areas are for living and dining located adjacent to the terrace and lanai; work, laundry and utility spaces located in the center of the house behind the fireplace; master, guest and nursery bedrooms; master and guest bathrooms; a carport with an adjoining tool closet; and, a fully landscaped lot.

In keeping with his Usonian grammar, Mr. Wright designed SAMARA on a four-foot square grid. The house totals 2,200 square feet in area and sits on one acre of sloping terrain. The living and dining rooms, and the master and guest bedrooms open onto the terrace and lanai, through floor to ceiling French glass doors, which are oriented in a southeasternly direction for maximum sun exposure.
