The Atom Brick - Darwin D. Martin House

Frank Lloyd Wright’s Darwin D. Martin House was built between 1903 and 1905 in the historic Parkside neighborhood of Buffalo, New York. This important Prairie School Home built for businessman Darwin D. Martin and was referred to as “the opus” by Wright himself. Prominent rectilinear lines of the architecture hug close to the prairie landscape. These hard edges are softened by the ground’s considerable gardens and plantings woven throughout property.

Frank Lloyd Wright and Darwin D. Martin would build a life long friendship that would span 22 years and included other projects such as the Martin's summer home on Lake Erie, Graycliff, and the Blue-Sky Mausoleum that was never built.

This Atom Brick set highlights the Prairie Style design of the home and its site allowing the builder to understand the total layout of the house and highlights features unique to the property including the “T” shaped floor plan and extensive art glass windows.

The Darwin D. Martin House is a National Historic Landmark.
