|Name||FRANK THOMAS HOUSE|
|Architects||FRANK LLOYD WRIGHT|
|Address||210 Forest Ave., Oak Park, Illinois, USA|
Here the basement is fully on ground level, placing the living and dining spaces up on this so-called pedestal. The entrance is intriguing: after passing though an arch in the wall, an outside staircase leads up to the ling front porch that flanks the living room ,and gains entry into a vestibule. The “L”-plan is far less formal than earlier axial plans and demonstrates Wright’s tendency to move away from the major-minor axis type of design exemplified by the Winslow house into a plan with more plasticity , such as this one for Fran Thomas and Willian Fricke house.
