The Samera House: A Reflection of Frank Lloyd Wright Home Designs

Samera is a house carved and molded by nature with an elaborately designed entrance. This type of construction emphasized that the building is on a higher level than the entrance. As I entered the house, I felt as if the building was a separate entity from the entrance making it easier for anyone to see the upper and lower levels of the building.

The Chinese lion sculptures found above the entrance to the door may represent the roles of the man and woman of the house.
