The Prairie Style, that truly American form of architecture, has its roots in the Midwestern plains. Francis Barry Byrne designed this elegant Prairie Style house for Dr. James Clarke in 1916. Built on a somewhat narrow city lot in Fairfield, Iowa, it represents a very effective solution for an open plan Prairie Style house, adapted to city conditions. The floor plan is compact but with a free flow of space within the house and from within to the outdoors. Among its unusual features are its exterior of brick and the large arched window in the living room.
