Original Owner Jack Lamberson
Address 511 North Park Avenue, Oskaloosa
Year Built 1948

Jack's wife, Alice, introduced the idea of using Wright to design their houses to both her husband and the Alsops, whose home is close by.

The house is built of red brick and has redwood trim.  The house is composed of a main wing (with terrace, living room, workspace and part of the master bedroom) with a 4X4 square grid, and a small bedroom wing, also a 4X4 grid, but offset 60 degrees.  This gives the effect of eliminating right angles; Wright makes most of the corners 60 or 120 degrees.
