The Glasner Residence
Nestled among the trees on its hillside in Glencoe, Illinois, the Glasner Residence, a Prairie School jewel by Frank Lloyd Wright proves that a home can be both compact and spacious at the same time. It was updated with sensitivity and taste, making the plan even more comfortable and convenient.
Though a two story house, at first glance it appears to have only a single story, with the entry on the uphill side, into the upper level. But the house is cleverly nestled into its slope so that a garage is tucked underneath. The upper level consists of a Living Room, the kitchen adjacent, a Dining Room, a Master Bedroom suite, and the former library, now converted to a small bedroom with bath. The lower level contains a 2 car garage and enough space for at least another 3 bedrooms. It is currently used by its owner, an architect, as a workspace. The lower level rooms open out onto garden terraces.
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. These plans are ideal for a moderate to steep sloping site. This house would be comfortable in a suburban or country setting. Excluding terraces, this house has outside dimensions of approximately 50'x87'.

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.
