Architect

Frank Lloyd Wright, 1915

Description

This compact Prairie-Style home designed by Frank Lloyd Wright is located in the oldest section of Rogers Park. The home was completed for the co-owner of the Bach Brick Company. He was inspired to build it after his brother commissioned another Wright home nearby (since demolished). It is one of the latest examples of Wright’s use of Prairie-Style design. The house was designed as a country home with views of Lake Michigan and a spacious yard. It was meticulously restored to its original splendor by Tawani Enterprises, and it is now operated as a vacation home and event venue. The Japanese Tea House and Gardens are also available for events. No longer in the country, today the Emil Bach House is a hidden gem surrounded by a densely-populated Chicago neighborhood.
