One of the last of famed architect Frank Lloyd Wright's designs for a small urban house, this residence combines elements of the Prairie style with a compact plan well suited for its mid-block site. The inward orientation of the house--with its entrance virtually hidden from Sheridan Road--ensures the privacy of its residents and reflects Wright's ideas for the importance of family life. The house was designed for Emil Bach, who was co-owner of the Bach Brick Company and a great admirer of Wright's work.
