OSCAR B. BALCH HOUSE ~ Frank Lloyd Wright, Architect

Selected for Google Maps and Google Earth

A MUSICAL TOUR OF FLW HOMES IN OAK PARK, IL

The Prairie style Balch House was designed by famous architect Frank Lloyd Wright in 1911. The house is one of the first Wright houses to employ a flat roof which gives the home a horizontal linearity. Historian Thomas O'Gorman noted that the home may provide a glimpse into the subconscious mind of Wright. The Balch house is listed as a contributing property to a U.S. federally Registered Historic District.
