Prairie Style Homes In Oak Park Real Estate

by The Real Estate Buyers

One of America’s greatest architects, Frank Lloyd Wright, began designing homes in Oak Park in 1889. Radically new in conception, the Prairie Style Homes designed by Wright featured low horizontal lines, open floor plans, and clerestory windows; they fit the landscape and the exterior brick and stucco in earth tones were a dramatic contrast to Victorian frame houses. Wright worked with other architects including Richard Bock, William Eugene Drummond, Marion Mahony Griffin, Walter Burley Griffin. Other architects in the Prairie- Style School—George W. Maher, John Van Bergen, and E.E. Roberts became well-known and designed many homes in the Oak Park community.  The twenty years of Wright’s residency in Oak Park, with his influence on a school of architecture, has given the village an incomparable built environment. Oak Park’s three historic districts—the first being the Frank Lloyd Wright District—preserve this architectural heritage and ensure the quality of all the housing in the community.
