Completed in 1910, the Frederick C. Robie™ House, located in Chicago’s Hyde Park neighborhood, is considered to be Frank Lloyd Wright’s most accomplished Prairie-style work. Prairie style is acknowledged as the first truly American style, characterized by dominating horizontal lines, banded rows of windows and spacious, open floor plans. Robie wanted a home that would provide beautiful vistas of the surrounding neighborhood while maintaining privacy for his family. Combined with the long, narrow size and shape, the views inspired Wright’s vision for the 9,062 square foot residence.
