Prairie Style Style Floor Plans

At the beginning of the 20th century, Frank Lloyd Wright introduced a distinct new architecture, expressing the flat, sweeping prairie of his native Midwest. The architecture of the Prairie house was created to meet Wright's objectives of a simplicity and integrity that combined comfort, utility and beauty but did not imitate past styles. Prairie home plans have broad, gently sloping, sheltering roofs with prominent low chimneys. Balconies and terraces extend in several directions beyond the basic house, creating protected outdoor spaces and rhythms of vertical and horizontal planes.

  • Low-pitched roof
  • Overhanging eaves
  • Horizontal lines
