There's also more environmental, safety etc. regulations to meet in most EU countries. I tend to envy the US for its liberty in this regard. You can just build more quality of life for a Dollar.

Anyway, I've found an architect of New Prairie Style homes from Elmhurst, Illinois. Not all designs are perfect, but imho it's great to see this interesting style continued with foster care:

Stephen Jaskowiak (West Studio)

Townhouse

777 Euclid

1025 Forest

This is what I call a vernacular modern style. It is characterized by open plans, horizontal lines, and indigenous materials, in relation to the American branch of the Arts and Crafts movement.

Good thing about this early modern / verge of classical style is, you can include most modern/contemporary aspects without producing something awkward, you can get away with integrated garages etc. easily because it's ingrained in the style. You can even do infinite pools, huge glassfronts, many big balconies, beams etc. with style, without falling off the fence, as long as you stick to the style's relevant premises.

This could still be straight out of 1920, it's almost a mystic combo:

Great stuff. Thanks for letting us know of this firm. I know of a few firms that have done structures in the Prairie Style but I was not aware of a firm that seems to specialize in it.

Welcome back Kandi! Your vacation was well-deserved too, at least from this forum's perspective. Keep it up, so many great contributions!

Beautiful, but somewhat out of the 'new' timeline. Let's keep examples from 1990 onward.

That one above is really a great building. The only so far posted US new traditional building that really portrays the classic italian/toscan villa stile. this easily could stand in europe and you wont even recognize its not a true classic!!!

LOVE IT !!!
