You’re in the Wright Place!


O’Connor House (1916)

Tucked away in Wilmette, Illinois, lies the J.J. O’Connor House, a testament to Frank Lloyd Wright’s innovative vision. Built in 1916, this residence exemplifies the architect’s signature Prairie Style, characterized by horizontal lines, low profiles, and an emphasis on integrating the structure with its natural surroundings.

While not as widely known as some of Wright’s other creations, the O’Connor House stands as a valuable example of the architect’s “American System-Built” bungalows, a series of affordable, standardized house plans he offered during the early 20th century.

Though the enclosed porch deviates from the original design, the house remains a charming example of Wright’s enduring influence on American architecture.

About Me

Yvonne Carpenter-Ross

FLW Enthusiast & Webmaster

Architecture and home design have always fascinated me. As a young girl I enjoyed drawing floor plans, rearranging my parent’s furniture and playing with Lincoln Logs and Legos.  My passion has always been the architecture of Frank Lloyd Wright. Since I have been old enough to drive a car, I have visited Frank Lloyd Wright homes in the Chicagoland area and attended the Wright Plus house walks. Now, as co-owners of Northern Sky Designs, my husband & I are able to combine our website design skills and FLW travels to bring you this website! Enjoy!
