Max Hoffman House is a Frank Lloyd Wright designed house in Rye, New York. In 1954, European automobile importer Max Hoffman commissioned Wright to design the Hoffman Auto Showroom for his Jaguar dealership at 430 Park Avenue in New York City. The following year, Wright designed a single-story L-shaped home for the Hoffmans on North Manursing Island. This large waterfront house and garden overlooks Long Island Sound. Constructed of stone, plaster, and slate roof, with a copper-trimmed fascia, the home features a Japanese-style garden designed by Stephen Morrell, curator of the John P. Humes Japanese Stroll Garden in Locust Valley, New York. In 1972 Taliesin Associated Architects built an additional wing to the north. An interior renovation in 1995 was designed by architect Emanuela Frattini Magnusson.
