Prairie Style

Prairie Architectural Style

Frank Lloyd Wright revolutionized the American home when he began to design “Prairie” style houses with low horizontal lines and open interior spaces. Clerestory (pronounced clear story) windows – are popular in these homes. Large picture windows, simple awning windows and sliding glass doors fit in well.

Prairie Style Recommended Windows

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. Large picture windows also help maximize your view in living room, dining, or master bedrooms.

Prairie Style Recommended Doors

Sliding Patio Doors match the low horizontal lines and maintain the open interior spaces of a Prairie Style home. This versatile patio door style can accommodate a variety of decorating and placement.
