The Mr. and Mrs. Lloyd Hackett Residence, 1962-79
Right as Wright! Incorporating and expanding on the philosophy and design principles handed down from the Master himself, Taliesin Fellow James De Long has created a modern interpretation of the Prairie Style residence appropriate to its Santa Monica Mountain setting. Wide cantilevered overhangs not only shelter the interior from the elements, but also in signature De Long style, create the second carport. Fine wood detailing accentuates interior volumes. Multiple French doors open to the gardens. A getaway upper level orchard and pergola area affords a quiet retreat, and a panoramic canyon view. High quality construction and detailing is reflected throughout the residence which incorporates a step down living room, formal dining room, two bedrooms, three baths, 2 car carport, and storage.
