Toyon Terraces was developed in the 1950’s by Rob Rose after he visited Frank Lloyd Wright’s Taliesin West in 1952. One of 50 students who were part of Wright’s Fellowship program, Mr. Rose was clearly inspired by Wright’s concept of “organic architecture” when planning the development. Toyon Terraces was featured at the 1954 Art & Garden Fair in Ross in an exhibit of scale models, architectural drawings and photographs. The June 25, 1954 Sausalito News describes the exhibit: “Siting of the new contemporary style homes which are individually architect-designed to blend with the natural landscape of the beautiful wooded areas in Toyon Terraces, is emphasized in the exhibit.” Toyon Terraces developer Rob Rose describes his visit to Taliesin West in his “Toyon View” Column, in the January 3rd, 1952 issue of the Sausalito news (an excerpt): “Frank Lloyd Wright, who lifelong has preached the beauty of natural materials, the preservation of natural landscaping and the complete harmony of homes with their surroundings, and who disliked the crowding of typical subdivisions and the marring of vistas with telephone poles, might well feel gratified to learn his preaching and teaching inspired Sausalito’s own Toyon Terraces.”
