"The Hanna House, maintained by Stanford University, is called Honeycomb House because the Usonian structure's plan is fashioned on a hexagonal unit system, a module that replaced the octagon as Wright's favorite from this time on. The basic module unit is one foot one inch. Each redwood board and recessed batten observes this spacing. Hexagons marked in the slab floor have sides two units in length. One-by-eight wall studs are on two-unit centers. Honeycomb House completes the hillside to which it clings, its floor and courtyard levels adjusting to the contours of the hill....It was Wright's first work in the San Francisco region." --William Allin Storrer, The Architecture of Frank Lloyd Wright: A Complete Catalog.
