The Craziest House in Amarillo is a Very Well Rounded Home
Amarillo is home to some amazing real estate.
Some of the homes in Amarillo have great historical significance, like this home that has a historical marker but one-day dreams of a home makeover.
Others are just magnificent pieces of architecture like the Harry Holland House.
However, there are some homes that make you wonder why did they do that and why?
There is a house in Amarillo that sits on Bellaire Street which is a work of architectural genius. Here is a photo of the home in the early days.
This home definitely gives off Buckminster Fuller vibes.
What is Buckminster Fuller?
Richard Buckminster Fuller was an engineer, architect, and futurist. He developed this design best known as the geodesic dome. This home is very much this design. This home was built in 1982.
The home is 1360 square feet and it has all the same things as a normal home. James Stockwell originally owned the house. If that name sounds familiar, James Stockdale is the brother to Forrest Stockdale and they worked in business together with Amarillo Air Conditioning and Sheet Metal Inc. They both moved to Amarillo in the 50s after serving in the military.
The triangles for this home were built in the sheet metal shop.
The cutest thing about this dome home is the shed to the home is also a dome.
Oh, the things you will find when you are exploring Amarillo, Texas.
