This architectural drawing for The Louis B. Frederick house represents the last home designed and completed in Frank Lloyd Wright's lifetime as he passed away the following year. This rare home is located in the Barrington area of Illinois and was designed in the classic Living Architecture Wright style, elegant and at one with the surrounding environment. Frank Lloyd Wright's philosophy was to design a manmade creation such that it would appear to grow out of its unique environment yet would be in harmony with humanity, a philosophy he called "organic architecture". This particular home was a  3 bedroom/2.5 bath house, constructed of clay craft brick with a cedar shake roof. Key unique features such as gallery halls, vaulted ceilings, cement floors and clerestory windows were combined with overlooking beautiful Japanese landscapes and a koi pond. The home was built into a bluff on a 10 acre sprawling property in 1958. 

 

The map offered here features the surrounding topographical landscape and where Wright wished to situate the house. The topographical lines were penned in red ink with identification of the locations for the gravel pit, retaining wall, graveled court, grass walk, and carport. Along the bottom of the plot plan is penned using large letters:

 

HOUSE FOR MR. AND MRS. LOUIS B. FREDERICK
