Wright began the designs for the Norman Lykes house a year before his death in 1959 and apprentice John Rattenbury was appointed the architect for the home following Wright’s passing. Rattenbury completed the working drawings and specifications in 1966.

Construction took place on the home for the next two years. He designed the furniture and built-ins, adapted from the original plans created by Wright before his death. The project was completed in 1967. You can see some cool old photos of the home here prior to the updates made in 1994 by the current owner and approved by the Frank Lloyd Wright Foundation.

“This circular home with rounded windows and walls, custom built in furniture, and a crescent shaped pool is perched on a mountain overlooking Phoenix with a 180 degree view from the living room. Spectacular inside and out, yet noticeably calming, its curves follow the mountain backdrop.” – Anne Stupp, Frank Lloyd Wright Foundation Board of Trustees
