Undoubtedly in a "keeping-up-with-the-Joneses" inspired decision, the Thomas Keys residence is located just down the street of another FLW home, the Bulbulian home.

Completed in 1950 with a design that was originally meant for a Detroit auto-workers cooperative, the Thomas Keys residence incorporates earthen berms into the architecture. This era of Wright's work is based on his Usonian theories of architecture, where he envisioned a more refined building style for the middle class.
