Seth Peterson Cottage

This Frank Lloyd Wright cottage was built in 1958 and is only 880 square feet.  Situated within Mirror Lake State Park outside Lake Delton, Wisconsin.

Horizontally-layered local sandstone was used for the exterior, interior, and massive central fireplace.  The floor and terraces are flagstones.

The award-winning restoration project began in 1990 and finished in 1992. Costing $300,000 with the help of a local non-profit. Helping to bring the project closed to what Frank Lloyd Wright had designed, but Seth couldn’t originally afford.

A huge soaring roof seems to hang from the air without any support.  Which frames primary views towards the south and west and opens up the interior to the trees surrounding it.

The one-bedroom is tucked in the rear of the cottage. Meant to be almost a womb to retreat to.  Then, upon waking you walk out into the large living room which opens to the world.

“(Peterson cottage) contained more architecture per square foot than any building Wright ever built.” William Wesley Peters – Frank Lloyd Wright’s Assistant
