This model illustrates in three dimensions both the complexity of Wright's design and its complete engagement with the site. (Wright always favored a building of the hill rather than on it.) The main approach to the house was on the inland side. The Institute's hallway was on the lake side, at the opposite end from the large living and music room pavilion. An adjoining hallway with small square windows connected the Institute's hallway to the master bedroom on the far right end of the house.
