Join a guided tour of one of few publicly accessible Frank Lloyd Wright-built private residences, which the architect says he designed in two hours.

Get insights into the innovative mind of one of America’s finest architects when you visit Frank Lloyd Wrights Laurent House. The well-preserved rooms and structure of the home demonstrate how the architect was able to view the world through the eyes of his clients. See for yourself why Frank Lloyd Wright called the house his little gem.

Completed in 1952, the house is the only building that Wright designed specifically for a client with limited mobility. It follows the Usonian style of creating single-story and modern homes at a moderate cost.

Proprietor Kenneth Laurent, a disabled World War II veteran, contacted Wright after his wife read an article about the architect’s custom-made Loren Pope Residence in Virginia.

Visits to the house are by docent-led guided tour only. Learn about the history of the house, the lifestyle of the Laurent family and Wright’s famous Usonian architectural style. Join the Twilight Tour to witness the house illuminated by Wrights lighting arrangement. For the Holiday Tour the house is decorated with personal items of the Laurents and mid-1900s Christmas ornamentations.

Appreciate the intelligent use of the interior space, which allowed the owner to turn his wheelchair around and never have to back out of a room. Door handles and switches are positioned at lower levels and cabinets feature doors on fold-down hinges. Pay attention to the low-rise furniture, designed to place visitors at or below Laurent’s eye level.

The house is a 10-minute drive from Downtown Rockford. On-site parking is available. Find additional parking at Spring Creek United Church of Christ, which is about a 5-minute walk away.

There is a fee to visit Frank Lloyd Wright’s Laurent House. Find tour times and dates and make reservations via the house’s official website.
