The hexagon is very prevalent in the Frank Lloyd Wright Hanna House in Palo Alto, Calif. The home is based on a hexagonal grid system, which allows for less error when building — unlike the errors that often come with building with standard right angles on a square or rectangular grid. The home itself is not a hexagon, but has a free flowing plan that curves around the hillside it rests on.

The Hanna House was designed for Stanford professor Paul Hanna and his wife in 1936 by Frank Lloyd Wright. Right off the bat, it's clear that this is an early example of Wright's implementation of non-rectangular forms. The Hanna House is built on a grid of hexagons, 26 inches on each side. The grid is flexible, and lessens the likelihood of builders miscalculating — which often happens when using right angles.

I love the natural wood color with the roman brick. The rocks are beautiful to go near the large tree.
