|This elegant, yet simple and
habitable work-of-art, is an embodiment
of Mr. Wright's design principles of
being open to nature and of making small
spaces appear larger. Balanced on the
edge of a wooded bluff overlooking
picturesque Mirror Lake, the 1958
designed Seth Peterson Cottage was one
of Wright's last commissions. The Seth
Peterson Cottage was described by
William Wesley Peters of Taliesin as
having more architecture per square foot
than any other building he knew.
Mr. Wright designed a tremendous amount of space in a limited area. The bedroom is intimate and inviting. There is an additional double sleeping space that folds out of the corner bench seating. The efficient fully equipped kitchen accommodates preparations for everything from snack meals to full dinners. The central focus of the living space is a massive stone fireplace with expansive views of the surrounding forest and Mirror Lake.
