Emil Bach House, Chicago, Illinois, Frank Lloyd Wright architect

Emil Bach House

7415 N. Sheridan Road, Chicago, Illinois Built 1915

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.
