Usonian House, Bloomfield Hills MIBack to Gallery

Frank Lloyd Wright built 30 buildings in Michigan, most were homes and most of those were executed by master builder Harold Turner. Mr. Turner built an estimated 85 homes in Wright’s Usonian style, the kitchen renovation pictured here is in a home located on Clarendon Road in Bloomfield Hills. The photos were taken prior to the final finish on the pecky cypress wall and soffit in-fill. This kitchen plan was affected by the owner’s insistence that there be a counter between the fridge and the pantry…which proved to be a catch-all for clutter. Executed in 1988, shows a very early teak prototype of the pks counter system.
