The exterior walls are non-load bearing and were constructed using red brick. Other materials used in the construction of the Johnson Wax Building included red Kasota sandstone and reinforced concrete with cold drawn mesh used for the reinforcement.

The earthy colors he used including his signature Cherokee Red color were typical of Wright’s work at the time’.
