John Replinger, Architecture

John designed and supervised construction of houses for more than 40 years. He did most of his work in Champaign-Urbana, Illinois, but his designs also appear in rural Illinois, California, Michigan, and Florida. We have reasonable photos of most of the 40 houses that he designed. The pull-down menu beneath the “John Replinger, Architecture” page displays images of his houses organized by decade.

By a web search, we found excellent photographs of two of John’s houses, taken by Phillip Kalantzis-Cope. A few of those appear in the 1950s and 1960s pages. See the galleries on Kalantzis-Cope’s site at

For more about three of John’s houses (Allen, 1956; Shull, 1959; Peterson, 1969), see the information sheet from Modern Urbana Home Tour 2012 by the city of Urbana:

We start here with the earliest work produced by the architect—a painting that he did before he designed any house:

    • It has a lot of similarities. I recently went into a home he designed in Lincolnshire Fields and it had the same ceramic tile, etc. Maybe it was the same builder.
      I love your Fathers work, very distinctive contemporary Architecture.
