Eight years after completing the Warren MacArthur house, Wright was commissioned to design a garage for the property. The first floor “Automobile Room,” as Wright labeled it in his drawings, featured a turntable intended to rotate the parked car within. The second story served as an apartment with a living room, kitchen, bathroom, and two bedrooms.
