Bachman Wilson House / Jon Roemer / 2014


Footnotes

After a cold couple of hours we moved inside to thaw and continue with the interiors. The house had been cleaned out for its impending dismantling. While this left it on the bare side, little to no sign of it having been inhabited, it gave us a clean slate from which to work. ➡︎

[...] in 1951, Mr. Bachman, who was working as Wright's apprentice on the Seamour Shavin House, in Chattanooga, Tenn., was killed in an automobile accident. During the summer of 1952, Dr. Wilson and Ms. Bachman visited Mr. Shavin and his wife and helped them move into their new home. On the drive back to New Jersey, the couple decided to commission Wright to design their first house. ➡︎
