HISTORIC HOME PLANS
FRANK LLOYD WRIGHT HOME PLANS
Frank Lloyd Wright, father of the Prairie Style, destroyer of 'the box', inventor of construction techniques, in a career spanning 8 decades, produced a body of residential work rivalled by no other architect. A few of his hundreds of homes have been measured by the Historical American Building Survey (HABS). These documents are a rare resource available to the public, an insight into the mind of a man considered by many to be the greatest designer of his time.

The Freeman Residence - 1924

At the Freeman house, in Los Angeles, California, Frank Lloyd Wright created one of his most elegant small house plans. In a surprising small area he created a flow of space between multiple levels that leaves the impression of a much larger house. Built in 1924, it was one of his several early experiments with concrete block and also was his first design to incorporate corner windows, glass butting to glass at the corners.

As a work of art these prints are worth purchasing in their own right. For those of you interested in building a historically inspired house, these plans offer an excellent starting point. Wright´┐Żs design places the entry off a breezeway on the upper level. To one side is the large Living/Dining space with the Kitchen in an alcove next to it. Off the entry, the stairs lead down to the lower level which contains 2 bedrooms and a bath. These open out onto a terrace. This house relies strongly for its effect on the way in which it integrates its form into a steeply sloping hillside. Any meaningful adaptation of this design would need at least a medium slope to be effective. With the entry at the top and rooms oriented towards views in the opposite direction this house could be built fairly near houses on either side and would therefore be suitable for some urban settings, as well as suburban and country settings. Including terraces and garage, the house has outside dimensions of approximately 64'x88'.

SHIPPING: Your drawings are shipped to you, by US Postal Service, rolled, not folded, in a Priority Mail tube.

IF YOU ARE PLANNING TO BUILD: These plans are NOT complete architectural drawings as might be required by your local permitting agency and do not contain all the structural, waterproofing and other details and information necessary for construction. But your local builder or architect should be able to adapt these drawings and add to them as necessary. What they do provide is accurate design information about a REAL Frank Lloyd Wright home, not a pseudo-Wright tract house as you will find in the house plan magazines on your supermarket shelf.
