Still Bend, Bernard and Fern Schwartz House
Two Rivers, WI 1939
Still Bend is based upon the September 1938 LIFE magazine competition entitled “Eight Houses for Modern Living,” in which Wright was among eight architects tapped to design a “dream house” for a typical American family with an annual income of $2,000 to $10,000. Named for the bend in the East Twin River, which flows through the rear of the property, the Usonian house is two stories, with a balcony off the bedroom area that overlooks the large living space. Each of three bedrooms has an outdoor balcony. A carport is cantilevered from the bedroom wing toward the street. The house remains privately owned but is regularly opened for tours and available for overnight rentals.
