William Winslow House

Having met Winslow while working at Adler and Sullivan, a newly independent 26-year old Wright would claim the Winslow House as his first independent commission.

Built

1894

Client

William Herman Winslow

Address

515 Auvergne Pl.

Status

National Register of Historic Places. Privately owned.

Though the ornamented masonry, symmetrical façade and large arches reveal Sullivan’s influence, the Winslow House is an important transitional structure for Wright, displaying several elements which will come to be characteristic of his Prairie style. The low, wide roof with its broad overhangs embodies Wright’s enduring preference for accenting the horizontal. Notably, it is in Wright’s design for the Winslows’ neighboring stable that the hearth is first established as the focus of the domestic space. The house has remained privately owned and closed to the public. In December of 2013, it was placed on the market for the first time in over 50 years.
