Home Style of the Month – Prairie Style

by | Mar 31, 2015 | St Cloud Home Plans

The Design Team is excited to talk about the Prairie Home Style this month.

Frank Lloyd Wright started this style. He dominated the architectural scene for the first half of the 20th century. His total impact is yet to be fully measured. Unlike many contemporary architects, he was very interested in the home design and how to improve the organization of space.

  • Emphasis on horizontal lines
  • Wide overhangs
  • 1 or 2 stories and some 3
  • 4/12 slope
  • Hip or gable roof
  • Brick or stucco (sometimes both)

  • Some leaded glass windows
  • Many casement windows together
  • Clean lines
  • Build from 1895 to 1940
