Frank Lloyd Wright revolutionized the American home when he began to design “Prairie” style houses. Rooms were a direct contrast to the Victorian era style; rather than ‘boxed in’, the interior spaces were open. Mostly an upper class or upper middle class movement, prairie style homes usually have low-pitched roofs, horizontal lines and open interior spaces.
Prairie Style houses employ the use of a high band of narrow windows – the perfect place for awning windows. The style of awning windows allows for ventilation while maintaining the accented look of a Prairie Style home. Sliding Patio Doors match the low horizontal lines and maintain the open interior spaces of a Prairie Style home.
