La Loma

There are many homes that were built in the mid 1900’s in the LA LOMA area that were inspired by the organic architecture that Frank Lloyd Wright was well-known for.

One inspiration may have been the Usonian style home and furnishings that Wright designed which was commissioned by Robert and Mary Walton and completed in 1957 in an agricultural area of Modesto. This style is usually a single-story home with flat roofs and over-hangs, using native materials.

Wright’s design was generally an “L” shape to fit around a garden area so that the many windows he incorporated into the home mirrored the natural area outside to the one he liked to create inside. He coined the phrase “carport” and used them for a car to park under instead of building a garage onto his Usonian designed homes.
