View Full Version : Rhymes Break Out Mid-Century Modern - Frank Lloyd Wright Tribute

12-24-2010, 10:24 PM
<p>Some of you may have seen some early pics of the architecture I posted before Christmas by request.</p><p>This started out as a project a week before christmas as something to keep me busy over the holiday raiding break, then it turned out to take much longer then I had imagined.  Now here we are 5 weeks, 223 Dividers, 105 Tiles, and 181 Crude Stone Blocks later:  Rhyme's Mid-Century Modern Break-Out Pond House.  (inspired by Frank Lloyd Wright's Falling Water"</p><p>As you enter the house you are greeted by a completely sterile room w/ nothing but a portal and a book sitting on the table "If you dont read the book first, you may just find yourself in trouble"</p><p>P.S.  Please excuse the lack of furniture and details throughout the home, I tweeked and scrapped as many projects as i could to pick up as much item count as possible.  Have so many little knick nacks stored away to really give this place the "lived-in" look if Domino ever feels so kind as to give us some more item count.  I would even pay for the extra +100 from SC if they made it stack w/ the +200 one.</p><p>Address:   Large Gorowyn Housing next to the door to the guid hall.</p><p><img src="http://i913.photobucket.com/albums/ac336/Destyn2001/EntryBook.jpg" /></p><p>After you take the portal (and follow the books directions) you are greeted by a flowing set of steps upto the house followed by the entry foyer where my butler will greet you.</p><p><img src="http://i913.photobucket.com/albums/ac336/Destyn2001/MainSteps.jpg" /></p><p><img src="http://i913.photobucket.com/albums/ac336/Destyn2001/Foyer.jpg" width="640" height="356" /></p><p>To the right is a small guest bathroom (or will be if we ever get more item count) and to the left you will find the main living area and library.  And then further in to the Dining, Kitchen and Steps to the upper levels and down to the workshop.</p><p><img src="http://i913.photobucket.com/albums/ac336/Destyn2001/Library.jpg" /></p><p><img src="http://i913.photobucket.com/albums/ac336/Destyn2001/LivingArea.jpg" /></p><p><img src="http://i913.photobucket.com/albums/ac336/Destyn2001/FirePlaceArea.jpg" /></p><p><img src="http://i913.photobucket.com/albums/ac336/Destyn2001/Aquarium.jpg" /></p><p><img src="http://i913.photobucket.com/albums/ac336/Destyn2001/DiningArea.jpg" /></p><p><img src="http://i913.photobucket.com/albums/ac336/Destyn2001/Kitchen.jpg" /></p><p>Continue Up the steps to the left of the Aquarium and you will find yourself on the second floor which contains a small study, Master Suite (did not take a picture of the master sleeping area as its just some Marketplace furniture at this point, item count once again).  A small guest room (also quite barren to to item count restrictions).  And also on this level is the main entertaining patio which if Domino ever answeres my prayers, I will be able to finish w/ some more details.</p><p><img src="http://i913.photobucket.com/albums/ac336/Destyn2001/OpenDen.jpg" /></p><p><img src="http://i913.photobucket.com/albums/ac336/Destyn2001/MasterDen.jpg" /></p><p><img src="http://i913.photobucket.com/albums/ac336/Destyn2001/MasterBath.jpg" /></p><p><img src="http://i913.photobucket.com/albums/ac336/Destyn2001/MainPatio.jpg" /></p><p>Continue from here up yet another flight of steps to the 3rd Floor Patio / Lounge / Game Room (Once again Item count got me here so lacking some details) and a semi-rooftop patio w/ some planters.</p><p><img src="http://i913.photobucket.com/albums/ac336/Destyn2001/GameRoom.jpg" /></p><p>Music Area as what respectable Bard could not be without his music !</p><p><img src="http://i913.photobucket.com/albums/ac336/Destyn2001/TopFloorGameLounge.jpg" /></p><p><img src="http://i913.photobucket.com/albums/ac336/Destyn2001/RoofTopPatio.jpg" /></p><p>And Finally there is a small workshop in the basement where I hand craft all my find furniture and decor.  I hope to expand this basement someday as there is a massive amount of space down here to utilize (there is a small opening in the foundation on the south wall to access the empty unfinished area of the basement.</p><p><img src="http://i913.photobucket.com/albums/ac336/Destyn2001/Workshop.jpg" /></p><p>And here is one last photo of the exterior of the home.  Thank you to all those who visited while it was still under construction.  Please do stop by again as I'm sure A LOT has changed since you last visited.</p><p><img src="http://i913.photobucket.com/albums/ac336/Destyn2001/MainPic.jpg" /></p>

<p>Beautiful - you have gotten the essence of it!!</p><p>Over water is just as good as falling water anyway...</p>

12-25-2010, 01:10 AM
<p>Very impressive!!  I am looking forward to seeing the finished home!</p>

<p><span style="color: #99cc00;"><span style="font-size: medium;"><span style="font-family: book antiqua,palatino;">The awesomest Frank Lloyd improvisation ever! I've had privilege to get the personal tour of this work in progress, and I must say every detail is incredibly picked for the theme. The windows add to the interior as much as they do to the light intensity. The choice of paneling is perfect, and so is the charasis platforms for actual stonework.</span></span></span></p><p><span style="color: #99cc00;"><span style="font-size: medium;"><span style="font-family: book antiqua,palatino;">Can't wait to see it done! <img src="/smilies/3b63d1616c5dfcf29f8a7a031aaa7cad.gif" border="0" alt="SMILEY" />                                 </span></span></span></p>

12-26-2010, 02:42 PM
<p>Really the awesomest Frank Lloyd Building what i've ever seen - this is breathtaking!! in next day's i must see this in person !!!! Great, thank you for sharing this genious improvisation!</p>

12-26-2010, 04:09 PM
<p>Absolutely astonishing!  Can't wait to see it when it's finished!</p>

12-26-2010, 04:24 PM
Totally AWESOME. This is pure genius

12-27-2010, 12:25 AM
<p>I went to sneak a peek at this in-person earlier today and WOW. I think that's all my boyfriend heard out of me as I was touring the house - "Wooow!", hehe. This is really impressive work with such attention to every angle and texture. I really can't wait to see this completed, this is absolutely wonderful!</p>

12-27-2010, 02:50 AM
<p>I've been to Falling Water and I  just want to say Wow.  Job well done.</p><p>Some keys features i remember:</p><p>Steps in the main room leading down to the water.</p><p>Built-in bookcases in the low-ceilng'ed second floor (6'0" males were not typical then)</p><p>The landing which stands right near the waterfall...  you couldn't even have a conversation there due to the noise - good place to make out tho <img src="/smilies/3b63d1616c5dfcf29f8a7a031aaa7cad.gif" border="0" alt="SMILEY" /></p><p>Again, wow.  Can't wait to see the finished production!</p>

<p>where is that cracked yellow stone floor from?</p>

12-27-2010, 05:45 PM
<p>That cracked stone floor in the master bath you are refering to is actually the bottom of a Vasty Deep Shrine.  Getting that round item to cover that square room w/o sticking out the side of the house was no small task either.  I have hardly started on the interior details and may still lower each floor as I built this house for my Half-Elf but he had his harvester cloak activated for the majority of the build.  So now the windows seem too high so I think i have to lower the ceilings and window sills on every floor.   Grrr...that will be no small task.</p>

<p>I stopped by to see this in person and couldnt help but notice you seem to have restructured it a bit over the pics.  Still looks beautiful though.  Absouletly amazing I must say and wonderful details, besides the details you still looked like you were toying with.  Cant wait to see it finished, and furnished.</p>

12-29-2010, 01:58 PM
<p>Wow!  That's some amazing work! </p>

12-30-2010, 01:02 PM
<p>Oh my gosh. Great teaser. Now I'm waiting to see the finished product. Amazing bathroom!</p>

12-30-2010, 05:20 PM
<p>You must have stopped in while I was messing w/ the floor heights.  I was in the process of lowering the 2nd and 3rd floor equally so I could skim some item count off the height of the stone columns.  This was a FAR bigger task that I thought as I had to adjust every piece of structure on each level.  I did manage to put all the ceilings in though during this process (not the detailed type I wanted to though) and also managed to finish off most of the interior structure as well.  There is a lot more to see now inside if you stop in again. </p><p>Will try to put up some more photo's soon as I progress a bit more.</p><p>Thanks for stopping by.</p>

12-30-2010, 09:07 PM
<p>I stopped by to visit and it looks wonderful <img src="/smilies/3b63d1616c5dfcf29f8a7a031aaa7cad.gif" border="0" alt="SMILEY" />  I really love the windows particularly.</p>

12-30-2010, 10:01 PM
<p>Incredible!  A beautiful homage to the original.</p>

12-30-2010, 11:02 PM
<p>Awesome work, looking forward to see the finished version <img src="/smilies/3b63d1616c5dfcf29f8a7a031aaa7cad.gif" border="0" alt="SMILEY" /></p>

12-31-2010, 01:05 AM
<p>That is simply stunning. I stared at those images with my jaw on my desk. I can't even think of compliments to give that could express how awesome your work is. A perfect homage to the greatest legend in American architectural design</p>

12-31-2010, 07:07 PM
<p>This is really an incredible achievement. I can't wait to see how it's decorated, but just seeing the bare bones house alone is pretty jaw dropping.</p><p>Very well done, I'll be stopping in often to see the progress. If you do come to visit the place, do as Rhyme says and wait a minute for the whole thing to render. So lovely, thanks Rhyme!</p>

<p>Stopped by today to see the freezer room, too bad you have to rip it out.  The rest of the place is coming along nicely and still takes my breath away every time I stop by.  Cant wait to see it finished.  LOVE what you've done w/ the kitchen, that stove is absolutely amazing and the sink reminds me of an old farm house sink.</p>

01-08-2011, 07:29 PM
<p>I stopped by and visited today and it was breath taking. I googled the home after I'd left and it fits it to a tee. You should be an architect lol I was serious about the marriage proposal as long as when I leave I get half of that vault of plat and the house LOL</p>

01-08-2011, 11:46 PM
<p>Awesome breakout job. Your pictures don't do it justice. I had to go see it in person and I am glad I did. Lots of clever ideas and details<img src="/eq2/images/smilies/e8a506dc4ad763aca51bec4ca7dc8560.gif" border="0" /></p><p>Kudos,</p><p>Cloudrat</p>

01-09-2011, 06:26 PM
<p>Thank you all for stopping by.  It means a lot to me that my fellow decorators like my work.  Hard to believe this is actually my first layout project, I had only used it in the past to roll a couple dividers on the side.  Pretty much done w/ all the little "tweeking" of the architecture now and ready to start the furniture layouts.  Hopefully by the end of next week i'll be ready to put up the "Final" pics up on the forum for all to see.</p><p>Thanks again for all the feedback</p>

01-22-2011, 09:46 PM
<p>BUMP:  Due to new full batch of pics and "Completion" of the project</p>

01-22-2011, 11:49 PM
i hadnt stopped by since you were putting ceiling/floors in it turned out lovely, just a shame about the item count i got lost on the 2nd floor, quite the little maze <img src="/smilies/3b63d1616c5dfcf29f8a7a031aaa7cad.gif" border="0" alt="SMILEY" /> your stove is quite inspired, really like the master bath & office

01-23-2011, 04:46 AM
<p>This is truly amazing. It captures the look of the original excellently. I love the windows and balconies, and that bathroom is gorgeous.</p>

01-23-2011, 05:59 AM
<p>It's gorgeous! Can't wait to see it in person!</p>

01-23-2011, 06:46 AM
<p><span style="color: #99cc00;"><span style="font-size: medium;"><span style="font-family: book antiqua,palatino;">Heartstopping replica of House of Falling Water! I saw it in person and every detail is as true as it is unique and fitted to Everquest character. There are so many great details, hard to name favorites. What stood out to me the most was subdivision of rooms and floors, as well as your choice of windows. </span></span></span></p><p><span style="color: #99cc00;"><span style="font-size: medium;"><span style="font-family: book antiqua,palatino;">Thank you for sharing!</span></span></span><img src="/eq2/images/smilies/e8a506dc4ad763aca51bec4ca7dc8560.gif" border="0" /><span style="color: #99cc00;"><span style="font-size: medium;"><span style="font-family: book antiqua,palatino;">                  </span></span></span></p>

<p>Been visiting the Homeshow a lot lately, getting up early and not able to go back to sleep. </p><p>This is such a wonderful house. Looking at the pics in amazment, while wishing I had such talent. I sit in awe of all the talent and wonderful homes I have seen in this forum. Such great architects, I applaud all of you! <img src="/eq2/images/smilies/e8a506dc4ad763aca51bec4ca7dc8560.gif" border="0" /></p>

01-24-2011, 12:34 PM
<p>Rhyme,Thought I'd let you know that I featured your house today on EQ2Wire.<a href="http://eq2wire.com/2011/01/24/guide-breakout-locations-for-housing/" target="_blank" rel="nofollow">http://eq2wire.com/2011/01/24/guide...ns-for-housing/</a></p>

<p>Wow, great job! You even have your own article written about your fabulous home! Congrats!</p>

01-24-2011, 02:03 PM
grats on the feature to Rhyme & Jesdyr

01-24-2011, 04:45 PM
<p>Very cool place! I like the roughness of the stones forming the walls. As others said, the choice for windows were also very interesting and something I would never think of trying.</p><p>There is a lot of cool ideas in there. Some that I think I might end up stealing for future projects. Great work! <img src="/eq2/images/smilies/e8a506dc4ad763aca51bec4ca7dc8560.gif" border="0" /></p>

01-24-2011, 09:38 PM
<p>Feature?........what feature?</p><p>Guess i'm out of my own loop here.</p><p>Add:   Never mind found out after this that I ended up as a feature on EQ2Wire w/ Feldon talking about Jesdyr's Editor.  I am truely honored to be what I believe is the first house I have ever seen make it to that site.</p>

01-24-2011, 09:41 PM
<p>Very cool!</p>

01-25-2011, 04:18 AM
All I can say is, wow. That is amazing! I'll have to go check it out before raid tomorrow! <img src="/smilies/283a16da79f3aa23fe1025c96295f04f.gif" border="0" alt="SMILEY" />

<p>Toured this tonight.  Very interesting!  Frank Lloyd Wright is one of my idols, a true visionary, so this was a treat to go peek at.  I liked the stove in the kitchen especially.  Very nice construction there.  I wish I could have viewed it at max textures, but my PC just couldn't handle it and I had to knock it down to High.</p>

<p>Absolutely gorgeous!</p>

01-27-2011, 10:43 PM
<p>Ah, this home is truly impressive!  The materials and mixture of textures you have used works just beautifully.  The setting you selected is perfect.   The entire presentation is really stunning, and I enjoyed my visit thoroughly.  Thanks so much!  WOW!</p><p><img src="/eq2/images/smilies/385970365b8ed7503b4294502a458efa.gif" border="0" /></p>

<p>Rhyme,</p><p>I went to Guk server, and I searched all the houses in Gorowyn for your place but i could not find it anywhere.</p><p>Did you move it to the rent free place already ? if so where ?? i'd like to see it.</p>

06-10-2011, 09:23 PM
<p>Someone was asking about Frank Lloyd Wright's work the other day in a post and someone mentioned this one I did so I figured I'd necro the post to make it easier for that original poster to find.</p>

<p>Just "WOW !"  Everytime I run across this home wether its buying something from your sales crate inside or seing it on forums it still blows my mind what the Layout Editor is capable of.</p><p>Hope to see another project from you soon maybe w/ some of the new DoV items.</p>

<p>I tried to visit this place tonight, but it seems the owner hasn't paid the upkeep. Does Rhyme still play?</p>

08-17-2011, 01:44 PM
<p>Sorry I was gone for almost 2 months and just came back the other day.  I'm logging in now to pay the rent (thought I paid them all up 84 days before i left), so it should be accessible shortly.</p>
