Completed in 1995 the home was commissioned by Sanderson Sims who partnered with Taliesin Associated Architects, John Rattenbury and the Frank Lloyd Wright Foundation to bring the un-built plan to life.

Frank Lloyd Wright Lava Rock Home, Waimea. Only FLW designed home in Hawaii.

History of Home:

Originally conceived for the Cornwell Family in Pennsylvania in 1954, the 3,700 sq. foot passive solar hemicycle home embodies Frank Lloyd Wright’s principles of organic architecture in which the structure blends harmoniously with the natural landscape.

The plans were prepared by Taliesin Associated Architects in Scottsdale, Arizona who are affiliated with the Frank Lloyd Wright Foundation and the only entity authorized to oversee the construction of Frank Lloyd Wright’s unbuilt projects. The project was built by Hans Torweihe and the interior design was completed by Gina Willman
