J Kibben Ingalls Residence

Posted by
Steven (Chicagoland, United States) on 10 September 2014 in Architecture and Portfolio.

The J Kibben Ingalls House was designed by Frank Lloyd Wright in 1909, the same year he closed down his studio in Oak Park for a brief escape to Europe with his mistress, Mamah Cheney. The Ingalls House is an example of a fully mature Prairie Style house. Earlier photographs show the J Kibben Ingalls House with brown trim and dark brown shingles on the roof. Today, the house has green trim with light grey shingles. It is symmetrical in its massing and displays all of the features of a fully mature Prairie Style house: concrete water table, strong, horizontal lines, screens of art glass windows, low hipped roofs, broad central chimney, and stucco exterior. Cantilevered balconies flank the J Kibben Ingalls House on either side. The horizontally streamlined planters on the lower floor were probably not an original part of Frank Lloyd Wright's design for the house as they are not seen in earlier photographs of the house.

Splendid photograph of the building so characteristic of the Prairy style. I guess these buildings are closed to the ones at Oak Park.

I have always loved your interest in architecture and you always show us some of the
best, with this entry at the tops again on this site. There is great design here, a bit
before its time, which makes it that much more interesting.

A gorgeous image. The house is just beautiful. I love the balconies on either side and the windows. I think that the large planters add to the overall beauty of the house. I love the architecture!

I take it that River Forest is an upscale neighborhood with all of these historical structures.
It must be amazing to own one of these.

@Judy aka L@dybug: River Forest is indeed upscale. Property values are quite high. It is nice to own one, but you lose your privacy when so many people are taking photos of your home. Tours come through the area many times a week.

Dans la belle végétation le gazon bien tondu quelle maison superbe architecture.
