J Kibben Ingalls Residence

Posted by Steven (Chicagoland, United States) on 10 October 2018 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.

Frank Lloyd Wright designed more beautiful houses than this one. The others houses are more daring and avant-garde.
