    Commissioned in 1902 and completed in 1903, Martin's house brought Wright eight other major commissions. Wright subsequently designed the E-Z Polish factory, which was owned by William E. Martin and his brother Darwin D. Martin. Darwin Martin was employed by the Larkin Company in Buffalo, New York, and helped persuade the company to have Wright design its new administration building. Darwin also commissioned Wright to design his home and a gardeners cottage in Buffalo, New York, as well as a summer residence in Derby, New York. In addition, homes were built in Buffalo for George Barton, Martin's brother in law, and for W.R. Heath and Alexander Davidson, who were Larkin Company employees. less
