This small hillside home in San Rafael is very similar to Usonia I. It’s on the “brow” of the hill, with no windows facing the street, and huge windows in the backside. The architect, Lois Langhorst, was married to a Frank Lloyd Wright apprentice, and this home was built in 1948 for Elizabeth McClave, Julia Morgan’s personal secretary.

Robie House by Bob Segal Via Flickr: The Frederick C. Robie House, Frank Lloyd Wright’s quintessential Prairie Style home, designed in 1907-08. The house sits on a lot on the campus of the University of Chicago.
The 1897 John W. Farson House, also know as Pleasant Home, Oak Park, IL. Designed by a contemporary of Frank Lloyd Wright, George Washington Maher, who is typically classified as a Prairie School architect. Located not far from FLW’s Oak Park Home & Studio. The home does incorporate Prairie and Arts & Crafts features, but the interior has the feel of a dark, heavily embellished Victorian home.
