ROBERT BERGER HOUSE PHOTOS
Robert Berger House, San Anselmo, California, 1950-1957
The Robert Berger house floor plan is shown below. This is a photograph I made in 1958 of the floor plan drawing for the Berger house created by Frank Lloyd Wright and his Apprentices. This floor plan is based upon a diamond module unit system where the angles are 60 and 120 degrees. The kind of "fin" that extends out from the main structure of the living room and kitchen area facing the bottom of the page below would come to a point of 60 degrees. The "corners" of the living area are 120 degrees, not the 90 degree corner of the typical box house.
A core kitchen hexagonal shape extends above the roof and opens into the living room at one point. Note that the floor plan shown below is only the First Unit of the Berger house. It has only one bedroom. You can see the dotted lines of the hexagonal-shaped roof which hovers above the central stack and the living area.
