Scope and Content

File documents an executed project for House VI, a weekend/vacation house designed for Richard and Suzanne Frank for a six-acre lot at Great Hollow Road, Cornwall, Connecticut. The file also includes material for renovations to House VI undertaken in 1983, 1986, and 1989-1990. Material in this file was produced between 1971 and 1989.

The 1,500 square foot plan of House VI comprises a kitchen, dining room, living room and study on the ground floor, and a bedroom and bathroom on the second floor. The most notable formal and compositional ambiguities of House VI are the two staircases, one green, and the other red and positioned on the ceiling.

Documents include drawings by Eisenman concerning the geometric operations at the origin of House VI (DR1994:0134:055-067), conceptual drawings (DR1994:0134:001-068; DR1994:0134:086-130; DR1994:0134:131-160), numerous colour studies of the elevations (DR1994:0134:262-343), a presentation panel (DR1994:0134:521) notes (DR1994:0134:779-782), and a first set of working drawings and "check set," completed on 30 Aug. 1973, (DR1994:0134:667-689).

Documents also include drawings for major revisions which occurred from 3 October 1973 through August 1974, photocopies of photographs of the house under construction (DR1994:0134:783-805), and a copy of the site survey (DR1994:0134:806).

Planned and executed renovations to House VI began in 1983. Documents relating to unexecuted renovations and additions of 1983 includes drawings (DR1994:0134:604-615), a "bid set" and annotated copies (DR1994:0134:552 and DR1994:0134:554-570; copies: DR1994:0134:646-655), and a photocopy of the site plan indicating Eisenman's initial ideas (DR1994:0134:224). Documents relating to unexecuted renovations and additions of 1986 includes seven drawings (DR1994:0134:553 and DR1994:0134:628-633).

House VI was extensively rebuilt between 1988 and 1990. The renovations included the replacement of the exterior plywood walls, the insertion of steel reinforcement, a new roof with skylights, the replacement of the original stucco by a coat of Finestone, the repainting of the interior, and the addition of a plexiglas barrier to the staircase.

Documents relating to the renovations of 1988-90 include original and photocopied detail drawings, an interior paint schedule by Eisenman's office, correspondence, original and photocopied technical literature, an incomplete copy of the specifications, and a copy of the original survey map (identical to DR1994:0134:806). There are also numerous photographs of the building before, during and after renovation, one photograph of presentation axonometrics for House VI, and one photograph of Eisenman's office.

Documents relating to a publication on House VI include: notes (DR1994:0134:807-853), the book mock-up (DR1994:0134:854-855), and fragments of the original coloured transformation diagrams (DR1994:0134:530-531).
