Smith House is a custom home designed by Frank Lloyd Wright in 1946 and completed in 1950. Undeterred by their modest salaries and guided by a shared love of architecture, the house was commissioned by school teachers Sara Stein and Melvyn Maxwell Smith.

The Smith House in Bloomfield Hills is an excellent example of Wright’s Usonian ideal which aimed to build quality houses for the American middle class. The lovingly restored home, which Wright called “My Little Gem” during a 1951 visit, features an L-shaped floor plan and horizontal, cantilevered roof planes. This tour offers a unique view of this special home, its landscape and the story of a couple whose vision and determination allowed them to achieve their dream.
