I recall going to my buddy Chad Nelson’s boy hood residence in Delaware a couple of years past. It ended up being a splitlevel late 1970s- 80 ‘s sub Urban house. The best thing in the home was the WALL OF CHAD, which highlighted every college image taken of Chad in 26 years, difficult middle school years contained, however a close 2nd went to the white conversation pit in the walkout basement. You simply do not see these and I believe they were the coolest spot to hangout with a team and drink or bury yourself under a down comforter for a snooze.
I ‘ve a hypothesis the Arts and Crafts movements and Frank Lloyd Wright sowed the seeds of the idea by making custom nooks and built in furniture that eventually grew in to the 60’s dialogue pit, but I’ve not shown it. Take a look at the Fallingwater picture under and I would like to know that which you presume.
Properly, even on Houzz it really is difficult to get pictures of retro sunken dialog pits (PLEASE leave me some links in the comments area in case you locate any more, therefore that I could add them to this ideabook), but I am discovering that there are modernized variations of the notion everywhere I look.
P.S. Chad, if you’re studying this, PLEASE add an image of your youth cellar! As well as the WALL OF CHAD!
Here is the Frank Lloyd Wright created dialog place at Fallingwater. I do believe it is a suitable precedent to the dialogue pit.

It is a wonderful retro space which is not false to the deep-set dialog pits of the sixties. Frequently times, ring-shaped pits like this you might encompass a fireplace that is fantastic.

A deep-set outside dialog pit, filled with with hearth and wonderful tall horse tail reeds ( believe that is what these crops are called, but I constantly fought in plants group).

This picture reminds me lots of a conversation pit as well as the Fallingwater picture, particularly as the furniture is reduced as well as the ceilings are large and really so fine.
The totally outside variant of the dialogue pit, filled with with fireplace in the middle!
I guess one could look at this this revered hot tub a dialogue pit that is submerged. Am I stretching it far too also much here? Probably.

The contemporary kitchen nook, which likewise has its origins in the Arts and Crafts movements, is just another type of the dialog pit, because it compels them to look at one another till they socialize and gathers together folks on delicate pillows!

The couch, soared within my my youth to its pinnacle of popularity, followed the entire conversation pit age. It only required that place and place it above groundlevel

Notably in comparison to the Fallingwater dialog place, this kind of shot makes me grin. The positioning harks back to that of FLW’s, plus they remember the stone outcropping that juts through the ground.
Thanks so much for pointing out this wonderful, openair, tropical dialogue pit!
