There are many Frank Lloyd Wright-inspired homes across Chicago. Just look to Oak Park’s historic district where the architect’s restored home and studio reside. The Prairie School style populates the blocks there, but over in south suburban Orland Park architecture admirers will find a replica unlike any other.
The low-slung brick home took three years to build in 2006 and pulls design inspiration from a dozen Frank Lloyd Wright homes. Every element of the house—millwork, stained glass, tiles, and furniture—mimics the architect’s aesthetic.
In the great room, specific elements were replicated from Illinois homes including custom stained art glass from the Ward Willits House in Highland Park and the arched, starburst fireplace from the Arthur Huertly House in Oak Park. Plus, the library replicates the interior ceiling and light fixtures from the Robie House in Hyde Park.
In the dining room, a custom-built table with stained glass posts draw inspiration from the Meyer May House in Grand Rapids, Michigan. The chairs have a classic Wright silhouette with strong vertical lines and tall backs, too.
There are 15-foot barrel ceilings, geometric stained glass chandeliers, and custom landscape murals. But unlike original Wright homes, this one comes with modern amenities like a movie room with Subzero beverage drawers, radiant heated floors, and an indoor Whirlpool hot tub.
