Brauner House
by Frank Lloyd Wright
The Brauners were part of the original cooperative group to build Wright homes in this area. Okemos, Michigan was to be the site of Wright's first Usonian community. There were 7 or 8 clients who were going to build in the area. Unfortunately, the venture was not able to get off the ground because financing wasn't available through conventional means. Wright homes were quite unconventional and most of the clients of the early Usonian homes had trouble getting financing. Though the cooperative financing didn't go through, the Brauners built their home many years later. This home was built of concrete blocks that were painted. This gives the home a more finished look. It is situated on a rise in the lot. Like most of Wright's homes, there is a side that the public sees from the street that has few windows meant for interior lighting and ventilation only. The private side of the house is mostly glass and affords the occupants a beautiful view of the garden and swimming pool.
