HISTORY: The Bogk House is one of Frank Lloyd Wright's Prairie Style designs executed in brick and concrete. Wright made his first trip to Japan in 1905, followed by another in 1913. He was to return again in 1917 for an extended stay. The year before this trip, 1916, he was approached by Frederick Bogk, a Milwaukie businessman, and designed for him this stunning home, clearly anticipating the work he was to do in Tokyo the following year. The masonry is sturdy and rooted to the ground, even while the highly imaginative stained glass and window openings break down all sense of the box, freeing the space to flow in all directions.
As a work of art these prints are worth purchasing in their own right. For those of you interested in building a historically inspired house, these plans offer an excellent starting point. The plan is ideally suited for a flat site. This house would be comfortable in a suburban or country setting. This spacious home has outside dimensions of approximately 48' x 85' plus terraces.
SHIPPING: Your drawings are shipped to you, rolled, not folded, in a Priority Mail tube. This listing includes architectural prints ONLY. Any photos shown in the description are for information only and are NOT included in your purchase. Thanks.
IF YOU ARE PLANNING TO BUILD: These plans are not complete architectural drawings as might be required by your local permitting agency and do not contain all the structural, waterproofing and other details and information necessary for construction. But your local builder or architect should be able to adapt these drawings and add to them as necessary. What they do provide is accurate design information about a REAL historic house, not a pseudo-historic tract house as you will find in the house plan magazines on your supermarket shelf
