Upon its com­ple­tion in 1938, the house was a sim­ple and mod­est space of 2400 sq ft suitable for both living and working. In essence it is a three-room open plan struc­ture with beau­ti­ful spaces for liv­ing, sleep­ing and working. Located on a farm field on the rural edge of Chicago’s urban energy, the house staked its own dis­tinc­tive posi­tion in the world of Prairie School evo­lu­tion, inter­na­tional mod­ernism, and Wright’s yet-to-be-defined/built Uson­ian invention.

Paul Schweikher (1903-1997) was an architect from Denver, Colorado, who later became the chairman of the Yale School of Architecture. The building was added to the National Register of Historic Places on February 17, 1987.
