Nathan G. Moore Residence (1895), Oak Park, Illinois


The Nathan G. Moore Residence built in 1895. Moore requested something “Elizabethan,” and the result was this Tudor style house constructed of Roman brick. On Christmas Day in 1922, the top floor and roof were destroyed by fire. Commissioned to rebuild the damaged portions of the house, Wright designed a more decorative fa├žade than had previously existed and “included a considerable amount of terra-cotta using designs from some of Louis Sullivan’s Buildings.”
