50 years ago John Randal McDonald wanted to create a Frank Lloyd Wright-esque home that ditched some of the budget busting features such as trim and custom lighting. The result was this home in Racine County Wisconsin, which has since been updated to a fabulous mid-century modern home that's a little old, a little new and a whole lot of awesome.

Kenneth C. Dahlin, of Genesis Architecture set to work to bring this Mid-Century beauty into the modern world. It can't hurt to have such a beautiful structure to begin with, but the subtle changes that were made push it just enough in the right direction that the home still feels fresh while being firmly planted in it's retro roots.

Alisa Swire is the owner of this super cool home and she's done a great job to keep the interior stylings down to a minimum to truly let the architecture of the space shine through.
