Wood and reflects the designs of Frank Lloyd Wright as such it is an example of Prairie style architecture.[2] The building, stucco and wood was completed in 1912 and listed on the National Register of Historic Places on August 12, 1982.[1] The Office and Studio incorporates typical elements of Prairie style such as geometric shapes and horizontals.
