Frank Lloyd Wright Home in Sammamish, Washington | House Tour

As one of the 20th century’s preeminent designers, American architect Frank Lloyd Wright is known for his unique vision and signature style. Wright pioneered the organic architecture movement and believes that every building should grow naturally from its environment.

Built in 1952, the Ray Brandes House is one of only three Wright-designed homes in Washington state.  The home is listed on both the National and State Register of Historic Structures.  Situated on just over 3 woodland acres, the home is exceptionally private and seamlessly integrates with nature. By day, the home is flooded with natural light—by night, redwood cutouts that band the clerestory windows capture the interior light, and turn the whole into a glowing “jewel box.”

The master bedroom has a built-in bed and Japanese soaking jetted tub. The room embraces the Northwest greenery and opens directly on to the grounds.

  1. This is a beautiful Wright house that deserves a very preservation-minded new owner. The home is a piece of architectural history, to be sure, with not only the structure designed by Wright, but also landscaping and the redwood furniture, including built-in couch, dining table, and master bed.

  2. I found that the Ray Brandes House is one of only three Wright-designed homes in Washington State, thank you for catching that. I must say that the exterior may not be altered. Thanks for sharing :)
