S.034  – Nathan G. Moore Residence, 333 Forest Avenue, Oak Park, Illinois

 

LINK TO “FRANK LLOYD WRIGHT IN OAK PARK” WEB PAGE

 

This Tudor style was designed by Wright for his neighbor, and remains one of the master’s most curious and photogenic projects.  It is a couple doors down from the FLW home and studio, and situated on a corner.  It is easy to get great shots from both streets. The garage shown at the bottom of this page is not the stable.  The stable is actually on a more remote corner of the property, accessible from the alley, and nearly directly behind the Hills Residence next door (S.051).  It is partially visible in some of my photos of the Hills house, and also has its own page (S.035) with more direct photography.

 

Although there has been substantial remodeling and some of Wright’s original design features lost to fire or other remodeling projects, even as designed it would have to be considered one of Wright’s more eclectic designs.  The additional features brought about by remodeling make it even more so today – a jumble of many architectural styles.

The gable-roofed structure adjoining the garage was part of the original design.  An open gated entrance to the yard was part

 of the original construction, but was walled in and a garage door added (as shown below, right) at some later point.
