I live with my husband Greg Lapp on the Kings River in Piedra, California in an amazing, yet efficient organic home designed by Arthur Dyson, who apprenticed under Frank Lloyd Wright, Bruce Goff, and William Gray Purcell. Not only that, but my late husband Dennis Lencioni and I built a Dyson home in the Sanger Riverbottom. Living in these spaces inspires me every day.
When my late husband Dennis Lencioni and I were in our twenties and we built this unusual organic home, some people “got it,” and others assumed it was a phase of youth. Amid accolades and jest, I was content to know the home influences and inspires those who live in it, that it’s an embracing and stimulating space.
