Located at 7415 N. Sheridan Road in Chicago's Rogers Park neighborhood, just steps from Lake Michigan, Frank Lloyd Wright designed this richly conceived yet intimately scaled residence in 1915 for Emil Bach, president of Chicago's Bach Brick Co. In contrast to the expansive, open Prairie houses Wright designed, the Bach House is strongly centered and self-contained. This home is the only remaining example of Frank Lloyd Wright's late prairie-style houses that combined a series of geometric cubes, cantilevered flat roofs, open living areas, and extensive use of natural materials.

The Emil Bach House was designated a Chicago Landmark in 1977 and placed on the U.S. Register of Historic Places in 1979. In 2013 the home was meticulously restored to its original appearance and now serves as a vacation and event rental property for the public to enjoy.
