The Kenneth and Phyllis Laurent House is a single-story, solar hemicycle Usonian designed by Frank Lloyd Wright in 1949. The residence is a rare mid-century example of a handicapped accessible home that was designed to be both functional and beautiful.With our custom trip planner, Rockford attractions like Frank Lloyd Wright's Laurent House can be center stage of your vacation plans, and you can find out about other attractions like it, unlike it, near it, and miles away.
Built of Chicago Common Brick and Red Tidewater Cypress, the house hugs the property and blends flawlessly with its natural landscape. When the home was built, the lot was considered on the edge of town. The City of Rockford has since grown to surround the neighborhood, yet the area still retains its rural feel with large wooded lots and curvilinear roads.
The home is a fine example of Wright’s Usonian architecture as exemplified by its smaller footprint, slab construction, carport, and outdoor connectivity.
