It’s #WrightPlusWednesday!

The John A. Klesert House makes its #WrightPlus debut on September 18. An American Foursquare with Prairie style influences, the home has simple, clean lines.

The Klesert House was designed during a very productive period in architect William Drummond’s career. Drummond worked in Frank Lloyd Wright’s Oak Park Studio intermittently from 1899 to 1909 and adapted the Prairie style into his own designs after beginning his own independent practice. In fact, the Klesert House has a number of similarities to Wright’s “A Fireproof House for $5,000” concept.

Welcome to our first #WrightPlus Wednesday!

On #WrightPlusWednesday we will be sharing something about one of the residences on this year's Housewalk. Today we spotlight one of the 2021 signature homes, the Isabel Roberts House.

Frank Lloyd Wright designed the Roberts House in River Forest, Illinois for Isabel Roberts, a member of his Oak Park studio, her mother, and sister.
Architect William Drummond made some exterior changes to the house in the 1920s, and Wright later remodeled the home in the 1950s, the only Prairie style interior Wright himself updated.

Tour this remarkable contemporary-looking space on September 18. https://bit.ly/3vXjuZs
