PROJECT SUMMARY

Designed by Frank Lloyd Wright and constructed in 1955, Stone & Lime Historic Restoration Services was hired to serve as the General Contractor on the Toufic H. Kalil House. The scope of work included building envelope restoration, including the roof replacement and site wall reconstruction. A significant portion of the wall was damaged in an accident and required the Stone & Lime Historic Restoration Services team replicate not only the original Frank Lloyd Wright designed Usonian blocks, but also the construction assembly details. The original roof details were also brought back to the intent of the original Frank Lloyd Wright design.

Wright called the building a “Usonian Automatic,” one of just seven built in the United States.
