Frank Lloyd Wright, Nathan G. Moore House, Oak Park, Illinois, 1895, rebuilt 1923.
After the fire, Wright rebuilt the Moore home in a much more idiosycratic style, combining, tudor, Sullivanesque ornament, as well as Mayan motifs that he was experimenting with at Midway Gardens and the textile block houses in Los Angeles.

Wright built a traditional Tudor style home for his neighbor Nathan Moore. The Moore house is interesting for two reasons. First it shows that early in his career Wright was not the iconoclast he later became; sometimes getting the commission was just as important. Secondly, there was a serious fire in the home on December 23, 1922, and Wright was hired to rebuild the home, and in the process turned it into something complete different.
