Eddie’s House was a doghouse designed by Frank Lloyd Wright for the Berger family of San Anselmo, California, to be used by their dog Eddie. Wright designed Eddie’s House to be in keeping with the family’s home, known as the Robert Berger House, which he had previously designed. The plans for the doghouse were completed by Wright in 1957, and the four square foot triangular house was built in 1963. In 1973 Eddie’s House was removed and thrown away, but in 2010 Jim and Eric Berger, sons of Robert Berger, rebuilt Eddie’s House from the original plans for a segment in Romanza, a documentary film by Michael Miner about Frank Lloyd Wright’s architectural works in California. The doghouse remains the smallest structure Frank Lloyd Wright ever designed.

Happy Monday! These photos are from the SC Johnson headquarters in Racine, Wisconsin, designed by Frank Lloyd Wright in 1937. Although the lily-pad columns in the building’s Great Workroom are impressive, Wright’s brilliant design pervades even the smallest details. The chair fabric was color-coded by department, each desk had a streamlined inbox/outbox system, and some chairs (like the one pictured above) had only three legs, supposedly to keep typists from slouching too far to either side.
