William Drummond was an architect of central importance in the Prairie School. He worked alongside Frank Lloyd Wright at Louis Sullivan's office, then worked as Wright's chief draftsman on many of Wright's most important early works. Drummond's design for a home for Ralph Baker has a luminous and crystalline elegance. The centrally placed living room connects with all the major spaces of the house. It's soaring double height ceiling contrasts with the lower ceiling of the sun porch. At the upper level a wrap around balcony gives access to 3 bedrooms and 2 bathrooms. This house design is very easily adapted to today's needs. It would be most suited for a flat site with good views.

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.
