BUILD & REMODEL - A Frank Lloyd Wright House


 Floor-to-ceiling windows and doors flank the semi-circular structure.
Tucked away at the north end of Virginia Beach, the secluded Crystal Lake neighborhood yields a surprise: The Cooke House, one of only three homes in Virginia built by Frank Lloyd Wright. Named for the family who commissioned the project, the 1959 house boasts a hemicycle, or half-circle, construction; an orientation that is painstakingly integrated with its lakeside site; and building materials that complement the wooded surroundings. Inside, a 70-foot, semi-circular great room offers views of the lake. Much of the furniture, including a 40-foot sofa, was designed by the architect.
Soaring angles typify the architecture of Frank Lloyd Wright.

The house, currently on the market for $3,750,000, can be viewed at flwrightbeach
