504 Spiller : Grotto Dome House - John Watson
This is a truly unique home with an interesting history. Designed by architect John Watson in 1978, it is one of Austin's best examples of organic architecture. Watson studied under Frank Lloyd Wright in Taliesin in the 50's and worked on the Usonian houses, the Guggenheim Museum and the Marin County Civic Center.
John describes the Grotto Dome house like this. "The Grotto Dome on Spiller Lane in Austin was designed to complement and reflect a thousand-year-old rock formation in its glass facade. A recirculating waterfall cascades into a pool below the entrance deck creating an intimate exterior space equal to the interior of the structure itself. A 50 ft arched visor of unite cantilevers over the glass wall and protects the sitting area from sun and rain." via
