Biltmore

Why you'd want to live in Biltmore

The Arizona Biltmore is a living architectural masterpiece, showcasing the seminal influence of America’s most heralded architect, Frank Lloyd Wright. As the consulting architect, Wright collaborated with a former student, Albert Chase McArthur. Wright’s dramatic style and imprimatur are imbedded throughout the resort’s design. The Biltmore was erected entirely of “Biltmore Block,” a variation on a textile block first used by Wright to construct private homes. The pre-cast blocks were made from desert sand on-site and created in 34 different geometric patterns inspired by the trunk of a palm tree. Chicago chewing gum magnate William Wrigley, Jr. became the sole owner and built the resort’s first swimming pool; The Catalina Pool. The historic pool is renowned as Marilyn Monroe’s favorite pool, and the site where the famed song composer Irving Berlin penned many tunes including “White Christmas.” Designed in 1914 by Frank Lloyd Wright for the Midway Gardens in Chicago, the Sprites were sculpted by an Italian artist named Alfonso Ianelli. When the Midway Gardens were demolished, the Sprites were lost until 1945 when they were unearthed in Wisconsin. How they ended up there still remains a mystery. At the request of Mrs. Wright, a mold was made of the “Solemn Sprite.” From this distinctive statue, six new Sprites were cast and gifted to the Arizona Biltmore in 1985. Bringing a fresh perspective to a design icon, the Arizona Biltmore premiered a stunning refresh of its historic main building – spanning the lobby, key social spaces and 77 original guest rooms in the fall of 2016. The legendary “Grand Dame” luxury escape has been recognized since opening in 1929 for its distinctive Frank Lloyd Wright-inspired architectural style and these new enhancements will reveal a thoughtful re-envisioning that retains the essence of the Wright design while infusing chic touches that appeal to the desires of today’s discriminating traveler. via Multiple Sources
